Ming Tombs- Changling

Ming tombs is one of the included stops for our trip to beijing. The one that we visited is Changling

"The Ming tombs are a collection of mausoleums built by the emperors of the Ming dynasty of China. The first Ming emperor's tomb is located near his capital Nanjing" - Wikipedia

It seems to be an interesting place and im happy that we visited it. Its not packed with people like the great wall and its a nice stop over as well.

Here are some of the pictures i took during our visit,

The hall of eminent favor

our tour guide told us that the more animals on the roof the more important the place

this is typical decor in the middle of the stairway area.

bronze sculpture of emperor yongle will welcome you as you enter the hall
