• Explore the Eastern Qing Tombs

    2011-04-07

    Travelers who are organizing a trip to Beijing, China, this summer can check out the brilliant Eastern Qing Tombs, which contain the remains of five emperors, 14 empresses and more than 130 imperial concubine.

    Guests will have the opportunity admire nine sarcophagi, which include one belonging to Emperor Qianlong, who was in charge of China for almost 60 years.

    To find Qianlong's burial chamber, vacationers can stroll through the facility's outer courtyards. Travelers will then have to venture into a tunnel that goes 65 feet into the ground and brings them to a beautiful marble gate, which features detailed carvings of Buddha and other images. Once they pass through the gate, tourists can make their way to a room, which is now the resting place of the emperor, two princesses and several treasures.

    Another part of the facility vacationers won't want to miss out on is Dingdongling - a fortress that was created for Empress Dowager Cixi. The ethereal building features several intricate carvings of dragons and the phoenix. In the property's main hall, guests can admire a wax figure of Cixi sitting on a lotus petal.
