800 year old painted Liao Dynasty Tomb
Jul 2015 • Solo
I added this to TripAdvisor as there are no reviews or information on this gem. The tombs are hard to find, and fairly remote - so I recommend using a taxi or street map on your phone. The tomb is just outside of Xuanhua's city walls. One tomb was open to the public, though I had to track down a bloke with a key as the ticket office was closed. I was allowed to take photos, but on hindsight, the photos will damage the art. I'll upload them all here so other people can benefit from my stupidity.

The tombs can be combined with a trip to Xuanhua's bell tower, drum tower, and restored western city wall. Jimingyi walled town is also nearby. I took a taxi from Beijing to visit all the above for 1,000 RMB. Even in peak season, a lot of Xuanhua's attractions close for lunch from 12-2pm.

Details from wikipedia - Xuanhua is home to a Liao Dynasty (960-1127) tomb with a colored star atlas painted with 268 stars including the sun, the moon and five planets—Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.
