Terracotta Warriors and Xi’an City Wall

We visited Xi’an, China to tour the sculptures of the terracotta warriors depicting the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China.

The Emperor had an army of soldiers created and buried to protect him in his afterlife.

In March 1974, a group of farmers digging a well uncovered fragments of a clay figure and discovered this archeological wonder.

To date, over 8,000 unique figures have been unearthed in many pits, three of which are open to the public for viewing.

Following our visit to the Terracotta Warriors, we toured the Xi’an City Wall which encompasses 5.4 square miles of the city.
