We had never even heard of this site, however found it very interesting and were impressed at how well it has been preserved and set up for visitors to view the dug out sections.

This tomb is different from the others because it is housed in a modern building with glass walkways that look directly down into the excavation. Further into the tomb you actually walk down so you are at eye level with the artifacts. The little wooden warriors may not be as big as the Terra Cotta ones, but the close up... More

Didnt exactly see the tomb itself but the gardens around it were interesting. Put on your trecking shoes. Beautiful area. Pity there was not a tea house there.

100 years after the warriors were built, another king built his tomb.... with miniature warriors. This museum is stunning - modern and temperature controlled; with views of hundreds of 1.5 ft tall "warriors", pigs, horses, dogs, etc... it's a gem that few know of!

The Hanyang ling tome was discovered in 1980s and was proved to be the fourth emperor's tomb of the Han Dynasty which dates back 2000 years ago, the worriors buried inside were amazing, and we were able to walk on the the glass cover to look down to the pits to see them, good museum it is.

We went to the Tomb of Jingdi and saw many mini size Terracotta Warriors buried inside the individual pits, spectacular view.

Amazing way of showing off a imperial burial site. So modern, makes it possible to walk over and look down into each pit. Photos are hard but with modern cameras you can get away with it and in any case you can just take it all in. I found it much better than the crowded terra cotta warriors pits and... More
