Historically known as Lishan Garden, The Mausoleum of Emperor Qin Shi Huang is the the largest imperial tomb in China with the richest buried objects. In February, 2009, the local bureau of cultural heritage finally declared the establishment of Emperor Qin Shi Huang's Mausoleum Site Park. The new site area retains the Museum of Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses of Qin Shi Huang and has a newly built Lishan Garden based on the discoveries from the mausoleum of the emperor.

The Museum of Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses is located 37km east of Xian city proper. The pits of terra-cotta warriors and horses first discovered in 1974 were one of the biggest contemporary archeological discoveries. With large scale, great quantity, unsurpassed technique and artistic value, the museum has brightened every visitor’s eye since its opening. Every year, millions of visitors came here, including many heads of foreign states and governments. It is the most well-known name card of Xian City and the first temptation for visitors to this city.

With an area of 226 hektares (about 558 acres), Lishan Garden, was opened to the public on October 1, 2010. It contains the tumulus of Qin Shi Huang's Mausoleum, major architectural sites that have been discovered, ritual sacrifice pits, the Museum of Terracotta Acrobatics, Museum of Terracotta Civil Officials, Museum of Stone Armor and Museum of Bronze Chariot and Horse.
The underground palace is the core of Qin Shi Huang’s mausoleum. To answer the public concern if the underground palace would be opened, the curator of the site park once expressed his principles, protection and respect. Leave that exactly as it is, now and in the future, as we all hope there is one day that people can use advance technology to see the underground clearly without disturbing the endless sleeping soul.
