The most attractive place here in xi an China is the Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses museum. In some American movies, you can find lots of scenes about this place and it is representing the Chinese culture in the world now.

The Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses is a collection of 8,099 life-size terra cotta figures of warriors and horses located in the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor. The figures were discovered in 1974 near Xi an China. The terracotta figures were buried with the first Emperor of Qin (Qin Shi Huang) in 210-209 BC. Consequently, they are also sometimes referred to as “Qin’s Army.” Construction of this mausoleum began in 246 B.C. and is believed to have taken 700,000 workers 36 years to complete.

What a tyrant! Actually Qin Shi Huang is a famous evil Emperor in ancient China and he did lots of horrible things using his power,like burying thunsands of alive people directly to the tombs.
