Visiting on a Sunday afternoon, I had the place almost entirely to myself, which made for a bit of an eerie visit. The tomb itself is a long brick structure with a vaulted ceiling. It's all buried under a mound that has since sprouted dozens,...More

Most sites in China are overcrowded on the weekend but this small museum was almost empty. The tomb costs 20 RMB to enter and is worth it. It’s small so don’t expect too much and was rebuilt a few years ago. Ok for a nice...More

Entry fee is 20rmb which is highly affordable. However it's a small venue. The venue gave a small introduction of the tomb and its construction. The highlight of the venue is the open display of the tomb of Wang Jian, the king of Shu kingdom...More

If i could give 3.5 stars, that would be ideal, but no 'half' stars possible. I give this place 4 because it's one of the few places that offer a cool tomb that you can walk right up to and see the whole construction and...More

For rmb20, the site is at most a 30min affair. The excavated tomb is the best part. It is above ground, dug into a mould. The entire length is less than 100m. There is no wall fresco, but look out for the sculptures at feet...More

You can go to underground and see the tomb with just pay RMB20. Beside the tomb, the museum behind it is resourceful as well, do not miss it.
