driving back direction Xian to the Tomb of Emperor Jingdi Emperor Jingdi  was the fifth Han emperor, who ruled China from 157-141 BC. The impressive tomb, which covers 20 square kilometers, is still being excavated
The tomb was discovered by a construction crew building a highway in 1990.
 I really liked how the musem is set up. the pottery figurines at close range with only a glass wall in between. Strolling on the glass walkways above the pits, you can have a clear look at the buried treasures in the shallow pits of the museum which are all well lit and dazzling.
