This is the burial place of Emperor Jing, the fourth emperor of the Western Han Dynasty, who chose to be buried with terracotta warriors that are so small that from the floor of the see-through walkway, they look spookily like babies, thousands of them. There is a mock-up version of what the horses and chariots would have looked like before... More

Even though these statues are only one third the size of the soldiers In some ways these are more interesting then the Terracotta Soldiers.

About 20 km from Xian, the Han Yang Ling Museum is in the northern suburbs of Xian City, A smaller version of the Terracotta Warriors with miniature characters buried which you can view through the glass floor over the burial pits. Not as grand or as impressive as the Terracotta Warriors but worth a visit.

I was very surprised how interesting this attraction was. The number and variety of small Warriors an animals is fascinating. We had access to the Laboratory where restoration work is carried out and this added to the attraction.

This place is over-rated. Only come here if you have extra time on the way to the airport. We made a special trip here after visiting the Terra-cotta warriors. That was a mistake.

I've been to this mausoleum 7 times because the international school at which I work runs a residential trip to Xi'an and this is one of the highlights of our itinerary. The mausoleum is toured by heading down a short ramp then you walk around it in a sort of glass corridor. This is sealed off from the mausoleum itself... More
