Nice park to walk in. Modern, life size sculpture of the tomb offering. Museum small (many objects taken to Lanzhou), but still some objects to see. Pay to enter the tomb, bare, but interesting to see the real thing, the design, and the build.

Wuwei was another stopover for travelers during our journey along the Silk Road.It is famous for the discovery of the Leitaisi Tombs.

Flying Horse
In 1969 ,farmers digging a well uncovered relics and artifacts from the Han dynasty .They found ancient copper carts, stone animals , pottery ,lacquer, and bronze ornaments.The jewel find is the 2000 years old bronze "Flying Horse of Wuwei" .It has been adopted as the official symbol of Gansu province since .The original relics were kept in the museum. In Wuwei ,there are horse brands and symbols everywhere.. Hotels ,cars , fast food chain, garments, mineral water , tonic drinks and even tissue paper packet .

War Horse
Historically , Wuwei was famous for its war horses used in campaigns against the Xiongnu barbarians.These horses are strong, fast and agile.The tails are short or bundled up.Ready for Battle..They ate an exotic grass from nearby Shandan Plains. Wuwei war horses were bred only for emperors and generals during the Han and Tang dynasties.Plastic version of the famous Wuwei horse can be bought from the roadside here.

Numerous Buddhist caves and temples are also found here. Wuwei was another route for Buddhism from India and Afghanistan into China via the ancient Silk Road.

This complex is worth a visit if you are passing throught . Underground there is the tomb of a general of the 2nd century a.d. where the famous flying horse was found . Now the horse ( which has been chosen as the symbol of China Tourism ) with other items of this tomb is exhibited in Lanzhou Museum .
The tomb is similar to the Wei Jin tomb in Jiayuguan , but it is empty and without tile decoration . So , if you have already seen that tomb , this visit can be missed .
The temple and garden which surround the tomb are a pleasant place to spend 15 minutes . There is a normal size bronze reproduction of the horses and chariots found in the tomb .

This is supposedly the tomb of a great general but the remains have been relocated to another museum. According to historians, this general was fearless n won many battles together with his loyal horse. The horse was so quick as if it had wings. The statute of the horse has it stepping on a sparrow, signifying its ability to move ss fast as a sparrow.
Today the China tourist industry has adopted this statue as their logo, it is printed on every local tour bus.
Inside the park, there are statutes of the general's army, arranged in some set formation.
Only interesting if you know the story behind the great general.
