Really worth visiting as you can have an idea how grand is the tomb a Ming Dynasty King have in China. Beautiful area surrounding it inside Nanjing.

You need a long time to get the best out of visiting this tomb. Right in the middle of a very green park. Very unspoilt and really well cared for. Just amazing
