Gilda's Photos - Xian, China

In between training programs in Shanghai, China, I was able to visit Xi'an and see the sights, including the famous Terracotta Warriors.

The Hanyang tomb, resting spot of emperor Liu Qi, of the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 AD)
In contrast to the Terracotta Warriors,
burial objects unearthed in this tomb include clay figurines of farm
animals, people, tapestries and jars.

each representing a different part of the emperor's administration.

to see into the pits.
