Discovered by farmers in the 1970s, Emperor Qin Shi Huang's Mausoleum is still the biggest archeological find in contemporary history, that up to this day, scholars are still making discoveries and running researches. The main attraction is the 7000 individually sculpted soldiers arranged to look like they're ready for battle, protecting the Emperor's mausoleum. What's the most striking with this statue infantry is the life they seem to carry. Divided into 3 pits, each soldier ranges in their own height, face, and even military ranking. Other pits exhibit more terracotta figurines including acrobats, musicians, and strongmen. It's a chilling peak into ancient China's history, monarchy, and craftsmanship. The 226 hectar- long park was only open to the public in 2010. While Emperor Qin's underground palace and his exact resting place are still restricted from the public. Needless to say, this is could just be the beginning to what more secrets these frozen warriors hold. Discoveries can be made everyday.
