Take a one-hour car ride to the world-famous Terracotta Warriors and Horses, nestled on the outskirts of Xi’an. This archaeological marvel, discovered by local farmers, unravels the mysteries of China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang, and his grand mausoleum. Dating back more than two millennia to the Qin Dynasty (221–206 BCE), the Terracotta Army comprises thousands of life-sized clay soldiers, horses, and chariots meticulously crafted to accompany the emperor in the afterlife. Each figure is unique, reflecting the diverse ranks and roles within the imperial army. Visiting the Terracotta Warriors and Horses is not merely a journey through time; it’s a profound encounter with China’s imperial legacy and the meticulous artistry that defines its cultural heritage.
