Western Xia Imperial Tombs: burial of wind and sand, thousands of years of ancient city dreams
continuous Helan Mountain background, there is an innocent desert, holding up one pyramid-shaped tall bauxite building, in the vast Under the western sky, it is extraordinarily majestic. Here is the Xixia Mausoleum, a dream of a thousand-year-old city buried by sand.
More than 700 years ago, the northwestern land stood a feudal dynasty of the "Great Summer" with the Song and Liao Dynasty. It was called "Western Xia" in history. This Xixia dynasty, once a prominent party, was left to future generations, but one after another.
The Western Xia Imperial Tomb is one of the largest and most intact emperor cemeteries in China, and is equivalent to the Ming Tombs in Beijing and the Songling in Gong County, Henan. Because of the tight schedule, we did not visit the Xixia Museum and went directly to the No. 3 Mausoleum, which was opened to the public.
The mysterious Western Xia Imperial Tomb is a tourist attraction that appreciates Western Xia culture and explores ancient times. It has an infinite appeal with its attractive charm and Xixia cultural relics that are quite different from those of the Central Plains.
Actually, there is no desolateness in my imagination. If you want to visit the No. 1 Ling Ma, you can ride a bicycle. Our girls are wearing skirts. It is not convenient to ride, just in the No. 3 Mausoleum. Wandered around. Each of these larger terracotta buildings is like a mysterious castle, and their broken walls are exposed to wind and sun, but they show a tenacity that never yields time and sandstorms!
/ Hh/Its not easy to go around here. Fortunately, I bring a hat every time, and I can take a photo and a concave shape. So the hats exit rate is very high, almost throughout the whole process. The skirt is yellow this time, and The scenery is still relatively good.
The Xia Dynasty Mausoleum has been lying here for a thousand years, like a vicissitudes of the old man, quietly telling the story of the past, under the Helan Mountain, and we are only a short passer.
Address: Xixia District, Yinchuan City Helan Mountain Dongpu

If you say that Ningxia Yinchuan tourism has to go to an attraction, it must be the "West Xia Ling". "Xi Xia Ling" is located in the west of Yinchuan City, Helan Mountain, is the tomb of the ancient "Xi Xia Kingdom" emperors.
Many people used to call it the "Western Xia Imperial Tomb", which is actually inaccurate. The correct statement should be "Xi Xia Ling". Because in the ancient Chinese tradition, the status of "king" was lower than that of "the emperor", and the "Western Xia Imperial Tomb" was suspected of being "degraded."
"Xi Xia Ling" is now a national 4A-level tourist scenic spot, a national key cultural relics protection unit, a national key scenic spot, and was listed in the China World Cultural Heritage Pre-list in 2012, and many experts believe that the "West Xia Ling" is likely It will be China's next world heritage, what do you think?
If you want to find a sentence to describe the Western Xia Imperial Tomb, then this sentence is a good fit.
Western Xia Imperial Tombs: May to October is the best time to play. It is usually three to four hours to play. You can go to Zhenbeibao Film and Television City in the afternoon, so that the day is full and you wont feel too busy! It is the first stop for our car rental, obviously not far away, only 30 kilometers away from Yinchuan city, but because of the high-speed seal, so many twists and turns, toss for a long time. It is very far away to see the four characters on the gate of the scenic spot. It is the Xixia script. Unfortunately, I dont know. The Xixia culture has been fully displayed here, and the trash can is super West Xiafeng. It is one of the largest and most complete cemeteries in China, and the largest existing Xixia cultural site. It is also the only scenic spot in China's 119 national key scenic spots, with a single emperor's tomb. The area of the scenic spot is quite large! There are 53 square kilometers, from Xixia Mausoleum, Xixia Museum, Beilin, Xixia History Art Museum. There are nine imperial tombs distributed, and there are 254 tombs of Wang Houxun to accompany the funeral. There is also a Xixia Museum inside. The interesting thing is the Xixia History Art Museum, which shows the development and extinction of Xixia with scenes, so that you can easily Learn about the past of Xixia and feel the changes in history. The museum, the historical hall and the forest of Stein are all very close, and it is very convenient to visit. Here is a tempting place. From the high tower, the Helan Mountain is like a huge screen across the northwest. The Yellow River is like a crystal-clear jade belt passing through the city. Not far away is the Jiangnan River Cover Plain. In history, it was once the northern minority and the Central Plains.
The Western Xia Mausoleums are a complex of tombs located in the western suburbs of Yinchuan City at the foot of the Helan Mountains. These are the imperial tombs of the Western Xia Dynasty (1038-1227) and many emperors are buried here alongside their family members. The entire mausoleum complex holds the graves of nine emperors along with 140 accompanying tombs. The shape of the Western Xia Tombs are shaped differently from those of other imperial Chinese tombs and tomb clusters. Structurally, they resemble a piece of cornmeal "wotou" bread or a sharp-sided domed pyramid. The scenic area also has built a museum dedicated to the Western Xia Dynasty complete with exhibits on art and history of the Western Xia and an array of carved stone steles from that period. The museum hosts an abundance of imperial relics of the Western Xia. Museum docents are delighted to share all they know and will happily assist visitors in understanding more about the rise and fall of the Western Xia and their mysterious, fascinating culture and customs.
