Worth to visit

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.

Yongling mausoleum of Wang Jiang Emperor was built during Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms period in Former Shu Kingdom. Today, the tomb is one of the unique examples of tombs architecture of that time. Yongling mausoleum consists of the complex museum, which permanent exhibition presents the history of the tomb, and a tomb, where you can enter and see its... More

Tomb of a local tyrant king. Worth visiting for those with a cultural interest. Interesting statues, too good and detailed to be original, show the way to the tomb mount that can be visited. Small exhibition hall to the right. After the tomb, go round the mound, exit the park and enter the museum with artifacts from the tomb, models... 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 level surrounding the sarcophagus. They appear to be 'lifting' it. Outside, a path goes round... More

Although there's not a huge amount to see here, the 20CNY entrance fee is well worth it. The gardens surrounding the tomb are relaxing and peaceful and on a Saturday morning in August, I had them all to myself. The tomb itself is dimly lit, but you can see everything there is, although annoyingly, they've surrounded the main burial site... More

I wish I had scrolled down through the reviews and translated the Sept 18, 2014 review. Clearly stated it was closed. I visited Sept 2015 and the sign said UNKNOWN when it will reopen. Construction was evident as I walked around it. Oh well. I gave it a very good rating because the park that adjoins it made for a... More

When you feel you've seen enough temples and pagodas, this is something different and quite unique for a change. There is not an awful lot to seen, but the burial mound, door and chamber are well preserved and the stone carvings are fascinating. The entrance fee is 20 yuan.

Otherwise I don't think it's worth the visit. There is a nice park around, with some statues, but the tomb itself, if you aren't into Shu kingdom history, is nothing special. If you are in the area, you can peek in (20yuan full price, 10yuan students, elderly...), but I don't think it's worth going there, because it's quite far away... More

Chengdu has a lot of 'second-tier' attractions, and this was one of them. It was OK, but not memorable.

Wang Jian was the first emperor of the short-lived Latter Shu dynasty (following the Tang). You can enter the tomb itself, and there are three display rooms of artifacts from the tomb (unfortunately two were damaged in the May 2008 earthquake and are closed for the time being). Also of interest, there is a nice teahouse on the grounds, which... More
