IF you go first to see the Terracotta Warriors, this place will lose is magic. I suggest you to go first here to enjoy the thousand of treasures collected. It's a nice experience, especially if you like archeological site.

This tomb is a fascinating visit. From the exterior, it is not terribly impressive. And, when viewed after see the main excavation of the Terra Cotta Warriors, it might at first appear as a lesser important location. Once inside the tomb, though, it's delights begin to become apparent. There are many treasures and artifacts shown in the actual excavated chambers. The sculptures, pottery and other treasures are exquisite in their detail and siting. If you have time for only this tomb or the Terra Cotta Soldiers, I recommend seeing the Terra Cotta Soldiers. I am very happy that I was able to see both these sites and encourage you to see it also if you have the time. There is a lot of rich history and culture to be found in this tomb.

So my guide says. I really do wish i will still be alive to see this tomb opened and absolutely wish the experts analysis of the tomb being intact would be proven true. As it is now, this tomb complex area including all the satellite tombs is said to be larger than many modern cities, such as Macau. There are now opened to public a few of these supporting tombs for the emperor after life entertainment, which is very impressive indeed. This complex is free to visit if you already go to the Terracotta Warriors, so might as well take advantage of it.

Its now a rather large park here and you can have a nice walk around. What I enjoyed about this visit was the show that was there. I'm not sure if they are still doing the show, because i saw this area in sept 2010.

I guess most of the reviews here mixed up with "The Museum of Qin Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses" , this tomb is actually located NEXT to the museum, which is about 10 mins car ride apart,
and the entrance fee is included from the "The Museum of Qin Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses".
FYI, there's no more warriors to see. and the only check point is a monument of Qin Shi Huang only. I was told Qin Shi Huang was worring about being robbed after death, so his tomb was planned with some toxic substance embedded ( rumor mercury ), therefore no further recovery in the pipeline this point. If you have time before heading back Xi'an, it's worth a visit, if not, you may skip it.
