Located in Xianyang City, Shaanxi Province, Qian County is an important area for grain production in the Guanzhong region. Qian County borders Liquan to the east and is quite close to the Liquan county seat. It borders Xingping to the south and Yongshou to the north. The county is famous for the Qianling Mausoleum, where China’s only ever reigning female emperor Wu Zetian (c. 624-705) and her husband Emperor Gaozong of Tang (649-683) are interred. Qian County has a long history and many tourist attractions. There are over 539 ancient cultural sites here and three imperial tombs, and it is the first of Shaanxi's 18 counties listed as major sources of cultural relics. Qian County has many local specialty snacks, popular ones being the “Qianzhou Four Treasures” of guokui bread, guamian (vermicelli), the soft “tofu brain” (doufunao), and the crispy bread chasu.
am8***21If you are a self-driving traveler, don't turn right into the parking lot, because you can buy tickets from here, except climb thousands of steps, there is no view, when you climb to the Qianling, you have to re-enter the door, although you don't have to buy tickets. After going to the South Gate, you should drive to the left up the mountain, go to the parking lot at the gate of Qianling, and buy tickets to Qianling. The parking fee is the same, and it is much less tired. Of course, you like to climb stairs. The latest ticket price in January 2021 is attached. At present, 82 yuan is a joint ticket, and there are three tombs. Qianling single ticket costs 30 yuan.
IT中年男Because of discussing some gossip topics of Wu Zetian, the poor man who was gifted to death by Wu Zetian. It's not too big, it's almost one way in, the baby has moved away, there are only some copies. You can look at the murals and see what the royal tomb is like.
沙漠之舟---船长The tomb of Princess Yongtai is located in the Qianling Museum in Qianxian County, Xianyang City, Shaanxi Province. It is the only physical museum built on the basis of site excavations. It’s especially cool when I go in summer, and the sarcophagus in the game is pretty good.
AURURA木木The classic here is to bring new life to the rural collective economy. The model of Yuanjia Village cannot be copied. Many people learn it, but they can’t learn it. The villagers have solved employment and participated in the cooperative. Double win.
E33***95The Zhao Mausoleum (or North Mausoleum, or Beiling Park) is a great place to spend a morning or afternoon. This large park and lake hosts a 400 year old stand of pine trees. The Mausoleum is not crowded, has good historical significance, good interpretive signage, and some really nicely preserved artifacts. Well worth a visit. We didnt rent a quad-bike or a paddle boat, but they looked fun.

Today I would like to tell a few words about Chinese pyramids. This is Qianling 乾陵。There is probably the hugest pyramid in the world. its height is about 300 m. Xianyang / Xi'an surroundings counts more than 200 pyramid-shaped hills where emperors, their wifes, princess, generals and high ranked servants were buried. Most famous mound belongs to the Qing Shi Huang Di. But we will try to understand what does make Qianling special. At first, we have to note, that all mounds were made from pressed soil, and only Qianling demonstrates stone walls. Qianling actually is considered as a mountain, there is accurately avoided fact to name it pyramid. In this location (photo is presented) we can see two other mounds, those belongs to Wuza Tian empresses and her husband. These two really looks like non professional replica compared to tall mountain)))))
Fact number two. All mounds construction / creation process was documented with details by lovely writing ancient Chinese bureaucrats, except... Qianling mountain.
Tourists are not allowed to climb Qianling, but it's easy to do. Just turn right from tourist path, come around and start to climb trough the forest from back side. Well, the no name pyramid welcomes you and gives you understanding of the situation. Ancient people tried to copy, to replicate gorgeous monument, but their effort resulted in simple soil hills construction. My wife and I have visited almost all big mounds in Shaanxi plain area, but only Qianling lonely and forgotten pyramid is made of rock with its big stone steps like a huge stair. It looks so old, ancient, even archaic. You will feel that, the pyramid had stood before Chinese ancient civilization bloom, watched epoch by epoch, and it is still standing now.
How to get there : from Xi'an 城西客运站 just take a intercity bus to 乾县，busses departs every 30-40 minutes. From 乾县站 after arriving take a cabby (10 min) or any public bus (30 min) to the Qianling 乾陵。
For thousands of years, in order to be rich and wealthy, gold and silver jewels, the tomb thieves who went to the tombs are always presenting endlessly. However, in the vast stolen tombs, the royal tombs have often become the first choice for the tomb thieves because of the vastness of the baby. In the change of history, there is simply no one who survived the mausoleum of the emperor, and was simply "disturbed by the dream." Of course, there are also headaches for the tomb thieves, that is, Wu Zetians "Wan Nian Shou" - Fuling.
