Introduction

The walled city of Xian is the capital of Shaanxi province and stands as the most important city in China's west, famous as the resting place of the huge Terracotta Army, created to protect the tomb of Qin Shi Huang.

Xian was once the wealthiest city in China thanks to its position on the ancient Silk Road. It served as capital to 11 dynasties and is now one of China's most pleasant cities

Terracotta Warriors

Peasants digging fields some 28km east of Xian discovered the Army of the Terracotta Warriors in 1974.

The immense excavated tomb is now the most popular tourist attraction in China. Over 7000 unique terracotta soldiers can be seen in formation of infantry, archers and horses in the three different pits occupying the site.
