The Ming Tomb is regarded as the largest imperial graveyard in the world, where the 13 emperors of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) were buried. When walking on its main path, the Sacred Way, you will see pairs of human and animal statues sitting on both sides, which are believed to be the guardians of the emperors.

Constructed between 1703 and 1792 during the Qing Dynasty, the Mountain Resort was the exclusive place where the emperors and royal members spent summer. Compared with the grand and solemn Forbidden City, it is characterized by simplicity and elegance, where the various styles of palaces are integrated into the surrounding lakes, mountains, and woods harmoniously.

The retired people’s life
Today you will visit Puning Temple and Putuozongcheng Temple, two of the Eight Outer Temples.

Puning Temple is famous for the world largest wooden statue of the thousand-armed Goddess of Mercy while the magnificent Putuozongcheng Temple has the same style as the Potala Palace in Tibet and is known as 'little Potala Palace'.
