This is the burial place of Emperor Jing, the fourth emperor of the Western Han Dynasty, who chose to be buried with terracotta warriors that are so small that from the floor of the see-through walkway, they look spookily like babies, thousands of them. There is a mock-up version of what the horses and chariots would have looked like before... More

Even though these statues are only one third the size of the soldiers In some ways these are more interesting then the Terracotta Soldiers.

About 20 km from Xian, the Han Yang Ling Museum is in the northern suburbs of Xian City, A smaller version of the Terracotta Warriors with miniature characters buried which you can view through the glass floor over the burial pits. Not as grand or as impressive as the Terracotta Warriors but worth a visit.

The Han Yang Ling Museum is in the northern suburbs of Xian City, beside the Wei River. It's about 20 km from Xian . I find this a very fascinating underground museum. You walk over the pits along a glass corridor to view the artifacts below , through the glass floor. The miniature figurines include armed warriors, palace maids and... More

I was very surprised how interesting this attraction was. The number and variety of small Warriors an animals is fascinating. We had access to the Laboratory where restoration work is carried out and this added to the attraction.

This place is over-rated. Only come here if you have extra time on the way to the airport. We made a special trip here after visiting the Terra-cotta warriors. That was a mistake.

I've been to this mausoleum 7 times because the international school at which I work runs a residential trip to Xi'an and this is one of the highlights of our itinerary. The mausoleum is toured by heading down a short ramp then you walk around it in a sort of glass corridor. This is sealed off from the mausoleum itself... More

On a tour as a "little extra" our guide took us to the Han Yang Ling Museum which is situated not far from Xian airport. While the major attraction in the area is the "Terracotta Army" - and this should certainly not be missed - the Han Yang Ling museum is in many ways equally impressive. Housed under a well... More

After Beijing we were in Xian and of course everyone knows the major attraction is the Terracotta Army, however you really shouldn't miss this either, we called in on our way from the airport to our hotel for a few hours. This mausoleum complex dates from a couple of hundred years after the Terracotta Army complex and was built just... More
