This is an underground tomb where the Emperor Jing of Han is buried, only a part of the site had been uncovered. Actual site is pretty big, total area of about 10 square kilometers !!! The uncovered portion hosting the museum is filled with miniature statues of soldiers, servants & animals. Being less famous than the Terracotta Warriors of the... More

The terracotta warriors in miniature and without the crowds! Very well presented and worth going to see- the detail in the figures is superb and you can see the archaelogists still working

This place is under the archeology department and they have done a wonderful job in restoring it and organising the viewing. I liked it better than the terracotta warriors museum. There are much less tourists and most of the clay pieces found are still intact in their original form.

This place can be difficult to get to and is not as excavated at the Terracotta Warriors. This is good since the historical artifacts have been much better maintained and protected. Very low light and glass protects the artifacts which is good, but can be hard to see sometimes. It also can be cool as it is sort of an... More

Not easy to access but an under rated attraction consisting of 2 large burial mounds which have been only partially excavated. Shows the artifacts and lifestyle of Han period China. Beautifully set up in modern high tech buildings, see through floors and information boards.

Worth to spend sometime to visit even the scale of the site is much smaller compare to Qing Emperor. Here we can see many smaller animal and small figures of people in the tomb. When I was here just last week, it appear that I am the only tourist in the entire place early in morning. The only problem was... More

After the experience of the Terracotta Warriors, this was a really interesting place to visit, smaller in scale but you are better able to understand the whole tomb layout because of this

Very impressive sight, it would be a must-see attraction were it not for the nearby, even more impressive Terracotta Army site. Still, even if less impressive, this is worth the detour (it's possible to visit both this place and the terracotta army on the same day from Xian). This place is all about (very detailed) miniature statues, rather than the... More

Understanding why emperor did this is necessary to see how China's unification was made and the purpose behind it! Love this place and the huge pyramid that holds the truth unseen!
