Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor, Xi'an

3.0
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. Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.

  • Nothing much to see
  • We got scammed. We paid for a ride to the mausoleum. They took us around the park for 10 minutes even though the mausoleum is just a 300m walk away. There is nothing to see as the mausoleum is not yet excavated. It's 75m below ground 😀
  • Good for a walk, but not much else.
  • China's first emperor is sleeping here
  • Something to see
