3/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web
See the burial mound of the emperor who unified China over 2,000 years ago at Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor, a still-unexplored part of a World Heritage Site. Included in some tours of the famous Terra Cota Museum nearby, the site offers a large tranquil park with archeological works and a small memorial marking the tomb of Qin Shi Huang. You will walk on a paved path in a large park, where you can observe some birds and see a pomegranate orchard next door. In fact, the whole area has thrived with pomegranates since ancient times. Towards the exit, you will see carved stone murals depicting the life and death of the emperor, with some information plaques in English around the site.

  • within the large park where the last Army (which is beautiful and should be visited absolutely) is the mausoleum of the first Qin Emperor at the exit of the site of the Terracotta Army there is a free bus that takes 3 minutes to the mausoleum. the mausoleum but is nothing more than a hill (not accessible to the public) where under there is the Emperor's Tomb (but you cannot see it visit) in practice turns x a huge Garden (very nice) but without being able to see anything ... If you're short on time you can avoid this visit just to see the terracotta army

  • 在兵馬俑之後來到秦始皇陵,真的是腳快斷了,坐電瓶車看了幾個坑,可惜地宮入口在哪裡還是沒人知道。 離開的時候招不到車,只好坐了一台私家車,差點被拉去買藍田玉...... 
  • Just a big park, nothing special indeed. The guides there were crazy, :-), they first organized the crowd of visitors pretty formally, then led us through the gate which was about 50 meters away from where we were gathered, then told us that we should explore the park ourselves, LOL!
