East Tomb

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
The East Tomb also known as the Fu Ling, is located 11 kilometers or 7 miles northeast of Shenyang and was built as a burial place for Nurachi and his wife, Yehenalashi, who is considered to be one of the Manchu founders of the Qing dynasty, who ruled China from 1644 to 1911. Nurachi succeeded in uniting different ethnic groups in northeast China and was the father of Abhai or Huangtaiji who is buried at the North Tomb.
The tomb is set among conifers in Dongling Park. It is an impressive structure with strong walls and a three-storey tower. The tomb was completed in 1651, and reconstructed in the Kangxi and Qianlong Period of the Qing Dynasty. The most distinctive feature is the 108 stone steps which lead to the tomb on the hilltop. The 108 stone steps symbolize the 36 immortals in heaven and the 72 evil spirits in hell, and indicate power and the emperor's rule over the whole country.
China is a popular travel destination for visitors and globe trotters from all over the world who appreciate its beautiful landscapes, rich culture, delicious local cuisine, hospitality and safety. Quality is China's top priority.
