Qianling 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.
Qianling Tomb is one of the famous tourist attractions in China and is located almost 85 kilometers to the northwest direction of Xian on Liang Hill. The tomb is a joint mausoleum of Tang emperor Gaozong and his consort, Empress Wu Zetian. Earlier, the tomb had two walls, but now only the inner wall and Xian Hall remain.
The wall of the tomb is as long as 19,400 feet and as thick as 8 feet with gates and giant stone carvings. The grounds of the tomb feature statues and carvings of birds and animals. Also present are statues of some of the people who attended the Emperor's funeral. There are also statues of foreign representatives and chiefs of Chinese minorities as well as imperial guards.
Even though Qianling Tomb meant partial loss of its tourist profile due to urbanization, some features of its past times of splendor still remain. It also enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers, and is one of the most visited places in China.
