If i could give 3.5 stars, that would be ideal, but no 'half' stars possible. I give this place 4 because it's one of the few places that offer a cool tomb that you can walk right up to and see the whole construction and...More

So glad we visited this site. A tomb of such historical significance in city center is amazing in itself. There is detailed information in both English & Chinese about its history. For 20 yuans, one gets to visit the tomb & the museum in the...More

Tomb of a local tyrant king. Worth visiting for those with a cultural interest. Interesting statues, too good and detailed to be original, show the way to the tomb mount that can be visited. Small exhibition hall to the right. After the tomb, go round...More

For rmb20, the site is at most a 30min affair. The excavated tomb is the best part. It is above ground, dug into a mould. The entire length is less than 100m. There is no wall fresco, but look out for the sculptures at feet...More

You can go to underground and see the tomb with just pay RMB20. Beside the tomb, the museum behind it is resourceful as well, do not miss it.

Although there's not a huge amount to see here, the 20CNY entrance fee is well worth it. The gardens surrounding the tomb are relaxing and peaceful and on a Saturday morning in August, I had them all to myself. The tomb itself is dimly lit,...More

I wish I had scrolled down through the reviews and translated the Sept 18, 2014 review. Clearly stated it was closed. I visited Sept 2015 and the sign said UNKNOWN when it will reopen. Construction was evident as I walked around it. Oh well. I...More

When you feel you've seen enough temples and pagodas, this is something different and quite unique for a change. There is not an awful lot to seen, but the burial mound, door and chamber are well preserved and the stone carvings are fascinating. The entrance...More

Otherwise I don't think it's worth the visit. There is a nice park around, with some statues, but the tomb itself, if you aren't into Shu kingdom history, is nothing special. If you are in the area, you can peek in (20yuan full price, 10yuan...More
