Qin Mausoleum to Open

 

(2010-10-11 01:15:33)

A grand palace museum incorporating the mausoleum of Emperor Qin Shihuang of
the Qin Dynasty (221 BC-206 BC) and his terracotta army will open Friday to visitors,
cultural heritage officials in northwest China's Shaanxi Province said Monday.

While the terracotta army museum has been receiving visitors since 1979, a park built
on the ruins of the First Emperor's mausoleum will open for the first time.

Covering more than 200 hectares, the park features the mausoleum of the first
emperor of a united China and a number of sacrificial pits.

The provincial government decided to incorporate the mausoleum and the terracotta
army into one museum last year, for better preservation and research.

Entry to the complex will cost 110 yuan ($16), according to the provincial cultural
heritage bureau.
