Ming Tombs
Originally uploaded by ZitaKat.

The Ming Tombs lie at the foot of the Tianshou Mountains, some 50km northwest of Beijing. Thirteen of the 16 Ming emperors were successively buried here, so that the area is known in Chinese as the 13 tombs.

Now the Changling and Dingling mausoluems are open to the public.
