Hanyang Tomb

Hangyang Tomb

The Hanyang Tomb is located near north suburb of Xinxiang City in the southern part of Phoenix Mountain with deep springs nearby. Some people call the tomb lying in such a position as head on Phoenix Mountain, feet on Old Dragon Pool with Golden Lamp Temple in the right hand and Shi'er Mountain in the left hand. Therefore, the scenery is really beautiful. This tomb is the best preserved tomb among the Qing tombs with the largest area within the country. The front of the tomb area is a stone gateway where there is a relievo: two dragons playing a pearl. Four characters are carved in the horizontal plate: Lu Fan Jia Cheng (Nice Town of Lu Kingdom). Next to the gateway extends a stone road about 200 meters long. On the two sides of the road there are 16 pairs of sculptures and stone animals that include lions, camels, horses, sheep and some other kind of animals that existed only in fairy tales. At the end of the road there is a bridge named Royal Bridge made of Hanbai strip stone. After, the grand stone gate follows of "Nice Town of Lu Kingdom." This town occupies an area as large as 80 mu with walls protected on the outskirts. Four big yards were built in the town and all the houses were made of stone. Thus, it has got a nickname of A Stone Town in Middle China. After entering the gate and walking straight forward, you will see the Door of Ling'en, Ling'en Hall, Ming Palace, Treasure Town and Underground Palace where King Lujian was buried. On the west and east sides there are balancing halls to go with the main halls. Great stone walls are mysterious and stately. Most of the buildings are delicately decorated with carvings of flying dragons and dancing lions. The grandeur of the royal family is explicitly represented here.
