Xian Maoling Mausoleum
Located in Maoling Village of Nanwei Towm on the Weibei altiplano, about 9 kilometers southeast of Xingping Country and 45 kilometers from Xi'an, Maoling mausoleum is the tomb of Western Han Emperor Wu Di. Emperor Wu Di, going by the name Liu Che (156BC-87BC), was the fifth ruling monarch of the Western Han Dynasty. He had reigned for 54 years, being one of the longest-reigining emperors in China's Dynasty.
As an emperor with great achievements in Chinese history, the Han Dynasty was at the height of its power and splendor during the period of his power. In the second year of his region, Emperor Wu Di began to build the Maoling Mausoleum, which took 53 years to complete.
Around Maoling Mausoleum, over 20 tombs now still stay with Emperor Wu. Most of them are the tombs of imperial wives, ministers and worthy nobles. The nearby Tomb of Huo Qubing is famous for its magnificent stone carvings.
Maoling Museum is built not far from Maoling Mausoleum which is dominated by the tomb of the famous general in Han Dynasty - Huo Qubing. The exhibition halls stand by the both sides of the museum complex with plentiful unearthed relics in Han Dynasty.
