The tomb of Emperor Qin (259-210 BC), the first Emperor of China, has not been excavated due to lack of funding, however it is believed that many of the treasures buried with him are still intact.

If you are visiting the Terracotta Warriors, it is worthwhile having a quick visit to this site. However, it is almost totally unexcavated and consists of a nice park with a monument. If you are short of time, this could be skipped.

Free shuttle from terra cotta warriors. There is not much to see because it is not yet investigated thoroughly. Great for photo spot.

Well kept gardens. There's nothing much to see as the tomb is unopened and covered in 55m of soil and overgrowth. German scientists have detected a gold coffin and lots of other goodies using some sort of radar. But the Chinese won't open it -...More
