Introduction

Qianling Tomb is located 85km (53 miles) northwest of Xian on Liang Hill. It is the joint mausoleum of Tang emperor Gaozong (Li Zhi) and his consort, Empress Wu Zetian.

The tomb once had two walls, but now only the inner wall and Xian Hall remain. The wall is 5,920 meters (19,400 ft) long and 2.4 meters (8ft) thick with gates and giant stone carvings. The grounds of the tomb features statues and carvings of birds and animals.

Also present are statues of some of the people who attended the Emperorís funeral. There are 61 stone statues of foreign envoys and chiefs of Chinese minorities as well as imperial guards.
