Of the three pits, the Pit No. 1 is the largest one containing at least 6,000 life-sized terracotta figures and horses in battle formation, which is the main body of the army. Each warrior has different appearance and expression, which is worth an attention. The Pit No. 2 is the most spectacular one with more complicated battle formations and more arms of the services. You could see the high-ranking officer, the kneeling charioteer, the cavalryman and his saddled war horse here. The Pit No. 3 is the commanding center of the military groups in the other two pits, which is also the only one that hasn’t been burned. The Bronze Chariots and Horses Exhibition Hall displays two bronze chariots half size of the real ones. What are they used for? Follow your guide to learn about its history and culture.
