Really cool historical sight and close by the city. It’s amazing to think that this place has so much history and is in such a good condition so I would say a must see in this city. Skip the museum and stick to the mausoleums...More

It's a must to visit the museum gallery after visiting the tombs to get a clearer picture on how big is the real tomb compound. Go after 3pm when the weather is a bit cooling and to avoid tourists.

I can laugh about it now, but chopped heads and impaled dismembered bodies as part of the Western Xia Museum was not what I expected when we decided to visit this top location near Yinchuan. Avoid the bloody reenactment of the historic battles if you...More

The tomb is by 50 min far from Yinchuan downtown by bus. There is a museum telling story about the local kingdom of Yinchuan and Ningxia 'Xixia dynasty' there, also the structure outside and inside the tomb. However, we could not walk inside the tomb,...More
