Beautiful place and a magnificent tomb
Apr 2014 • Solo
Tang Taizong is famous for skipping the whole construct-a-mound routine when it came to his tomb, and using an existing mountain instead. Unfortunately, this means that the tomb is located at the top of a mountain. It's quite a way up, so getting a ride in a car or bike is a good idea. I got a ride up and down thanks to a local with a motorbike, for a small fee.

The tomb complex is beautiful, with a big statue of the emperor (in his portrait pose) towering near the gate, and various stelae, monuments, pillars, carved stone inscriptions, and the famous statues (safety replicas, I was told) of the Six Armored Steeds. Those with energy after climbing up to the top end of the complex can hike further up the mountain.

One can get to the museum at the foot of the mountain by bus from the city, but getting back means one needs to get to Liquan city. There are occasionally drivers offering trips to the tomb from the museum, but bike pillion is cheaper. One of the best things about the visit, though, is the gorgeous views along the mountain road.
