We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Xian Western Zhou Chariot Burial Pit

Xian Western Zhou Chariot Burial Pit

In history, Xi’an is capital of five Dynasties, Qin, Han, Sui, Tang and Western Zhou, so Xi’an has the rich and colorful cultural background. The site of the emperor and the style of the ancient structures add extra charm and beauty to this city.

Xian Western Zhou Chariot Burial PitThe Western Zhou Chariot Burial Pit is a newly discovered Western Zhou cemetery. The excavation was excavated at Zhangjiapo in the Chang’an City in 1955. With a length of 5.6 meters (6 yards) and a depth of 2 meters (2 yards), the rectangular pit contains two wooden chariots with a length of 0.68 meters (2 feet), a width of 1.38 meters (4.5 feet) are arranged side by side in the pit with their wheels facing east. Doors with a width of 0.4 meters (1.3 feet) are lay at the rear of the chariots. Every pit contains two chariots, one slave and six horses. One chariot decorated with bronze and comprising of a single shaft is drawn by four horses and was used for battlefield. The other chariot adorned with seashells is drawn by two horses and was used for transport or entertainment purpose.

In slave society, the slaves were buried when their masters died while they were still alive, killed or after committing a suicide. The nobles believed that tombs were their residence in the spiritual world after their death, so they buried their slaves alive for further impelling. This is the reason why the Western Zhou Chariot Burial Pit appeared.
