The 13 imperial mausoleums are built on the mountains, and are built on the mountains on the three sides of the east, west and north, forming a complete system, large scale, magnificent mausoleum complex. Ming warlocks thought that this is the "feng shui" victory, excellent "jiyong", so was chosen by the Ming Dynasty to build the imperial mausoleum "Wannianjuyu".
Shenlu, the "general gate" of the Ming Dynasty Tombs, is located in the southern part of the Ming Dynasty Tombs. The Shinto Scenic Area is mainly composed of Stone Archway, Dahongmen, Stele Building, Sculpture, Dragon and Phoenix Gate, etc. The stone sculptures from 500 years ago are vivid and the most worth seeing!
The stone archway of the Shinto Tombs is said to be the largest existing stone archway in my country. It has a wood-like structure and has five rooms with six columns and eleven floors.
The Dahongmen is like a palace gate. There is a stele to dismount the horse on each side. It is engraved: "Officials are waiting to dismount the horse", which is a symbol of the supremacy of imperial power.
In the southern part of the scenic spot, there is a stele with an inner vertical stele, a dragon head and a tortoise body, 8.1 meters high, a stele written by Ming Renzong Zhu Gaochi, more than 3,000 characters, and a stele inscribed with Qing Gaozong Emperor Qianlong's "Ai Ming Mausoleum III" "Ten Rhymes", the east side of the stele is the imperial poems carved in the 52nd year of Qianlong, and the west side is the imperial writings from the 9th year of Qing Renzong Jiaqing.
At the four corners of the stele pavilion, each has a white marble watch and a strange animal on the top of the watch. The one facing south is called: Wang Jun. Those facing north said: Wang Jungui. A total of 41 dragons are engraved on the Hua Biao.
A group of large stone sculptures are arranged in sequence in the north of the stele pavilion. Two pairs of hopeful pillars, two pairs of sitting and standing lions, two pairs of sitting and standing cemeteries, two pairs of standing and lying camels, two pairs of standing and lying Linlins, two pairs of standing and lying horses, two pairs of armored generals, two pairs of statues of civil servants in clothes, two pairs of clothes and crowns Two pairs of statues of officials, this is the essence of the attraction! 👍The north is connected to the three-door six-pillar Liaoxing Gate, also known as the Flame Arch, commonly known as the Dragon and Phoenix Gate.

The scenery at the door of the home ～ is less clean, quiet and elegant, stone people and stone horses are childhood friends, we are all grown up, they still stand there, fearless of the wind and rain, silently watching the beautiful rivers of Great China
There are a series of buildings along the total length of 7 kilometers. The stone sculpture group is the stone sculptures and beasts placed in front of the mausoleum. There are 24 stone beasts and 12 stone people neatly arranged on both sides of the thousand-meter Shinto. Each piece is a large-shaped whole stone, with exquisite carvings and vivid shapes, and it is well preserved and amazing.
When I was a child, I remembered the stone man and stone horse. I went to enjoy the cool in the midsummer evening. When I grew up, I just kept passing by. When I was in high school, I was lucky enough to walk in again, and I never went to it again. Traveling Wanli Road, the doorway is so beautiful!
