This was part of our set tour, so we had no choice. Worth going once, but that's about it. Amazing that they were able to reconstruct the various animal sculptures after they were destroyed during the cultural revolution.

The Ming Tombs was the burial ground for 13 Ming Dynasty emperors from 1413-1644. A very tranquil place in the countryside. Lovely gardens perfect for picnics, relaxing and walks. Lots of history, artifacts, sculptures, and more. Great place to learn about China's history.
