The incredible archaeological site of the Terracotta Warriors is an unforgettable experience. Here you will view more than 7,000 life-sized soldiers, horses and chariots sculpted in clay. Each of the soldiers have unique facial expressions and positions according to their rank. The soldiers likely also had brightly colored paint that has turned to gray during their years underground. These elaborate statues are part of a mausoleum for the first emperor of China and are thought to be created to accompany him into the afterlife.
