  • This place is so relaxing. It is quiet big and there is some walking involved so the best time to visit would be early morning or late afternoon. Nevertheless, it has again that weird relaxing aspect and there was a cool breeze so the heat was bearable. The place itself is amazing. You can appreciate how much work has been put into it and how respected and loved the late emperor was.
  • One of the more complete tombs and a delightful place to while away a few hours. Some signage in English in the small museum area but you might need google or a guide to fill out a more expansive commentary on this important site.
