South Gate Tower at Han Yangling Mausoleum in Xi’an, China

A fascinating archeological attraction worth visiting while driving to or from Xi’an airport is the Han Yangling Mausoleum. The Han Yang Ling Museum is located in Zhangjiawan Village about a dozen miles from center city. The 12.4 square mile site contains the tomb of Liu Qi – the emperor of the Western Han dynasty from 157 until 141 BC – and Empress Wang. Encircling their graves are 86 burial pits. Those that have been excavated have produced a treasure trove of nearly 50,000 artifacts.
