Visited the park that has ancient tombs, terracotta warriors and extensive temples.

It's was a fantastic day out and I was really surprised that such a treasure wold be in the middle of an otherwise bland city.

Well worth a visit

These understated little guys are well worth a visit. The 80rmb entrance ticket covers a range of attractions that are now housed in one large, scenic park.

These mini-warriors as they are commonly known, are older than the bad boys at Xi'an. They are much smaller and cruder, basically doll-sized, but also far more accessible with no maddening hordes. The English explanations are informative and adequate. The perspex covers which protect the pits make it somewhat difficult to take photos if you are particular about quality. Be aware that only one of the pits has figures that are intact. since most of the figures were smashed when a tile company tried to build a factory on the site.

After you look at the warriors, the tomb and the museum, you can climb the mountain to a pretty, not-too-pretentious new temple and a view of the surrounding countryside. All in all, you can have a pleasant morning or afternoon stroll with a worthwhile dose of history thrown in.

These warriors were found buried below a pool in Xuzhou and have been excavated then repositioned in the museum built over the pond where they were found. The cavalry are still painted and the expressions are very clear.

The museum attached is also very informative about the weaponary and the differences betwen the Xi'an and the Xuzhou ones.

Nearby is a tomb that you can go into which is also included in the price of entry and is quite interesting to see the depths they went to when burying princes and emperors.
