This was really impressive! Amazing what people were able to build back in that time. King Quins mausoleum is covering a huge area with approximately 7.000 individually made sculptures of worriers with even different positions as well as different ranking officers, horses, weapons etc. Simply a whole town structure, including a giant town wall, with everything a king would need after he dies in order to live his afterlife. Over several decades an approximate number of 700.000 workers have taken part in this project over 2000 years ago.
History forgot about this place for a very long time and the mausoleum was randomly redescovered by a farmer, while working on his fields in the 60s if I remember correctly.
If you want to know mores bout this place, which is considered the eighth wonder of the world, you know where to go.
I guess you can find regular tourist pictures everywhere on the net, so I put mine upside down. ;)
Mentioning the tourists, yeah, there were a freaking lot of them which took away the fun, but anyways it was extraordinarily impressive.
