Clean, well maintained area. Definetly worth your time to visit here and walk down the lane with all the statues. We had a guide who explained the area in great detail. Very glad we went.

Being given a tour by a professor of Beijing University, we learned a tremendous amount of the Tombs of the emperors and empresses buried there. A great day trip easily accessible from Beijing.
