Guishan Han Tomb is a famous travel site. It is located to the northwest of Xuzhou City in the west side of Guishan Mountain. Guishan Han Tomb is regarded as an embodiment of the culture of Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 AD), Guishan Han Tomb for the sixth King Chu Liu Zhu (who reigned between 128 BC-116 BC) and his wife in Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-24 AD). With an area of over 700 square meters (more than 837 square yards), this tomb boasts the grand scale, extraordinary design and delicate work.The unearthed relics from this tomb like various bronze

ware, vivid gold-plated tigers and delicate jade articles are now exhibited in the Xuzhou Museum.Guishan Han Tomb is composed of two parallel but communicating parts: the south part is the tomb of Liu Zhu and the north part of his wife. Each part has a path for people to enter the main body of the tomb. The main body of the tomb consists of fifteen halls including bedrooms, parlors, kitchens and even the washing room and stables. The whole tomb even has a complete drainage system. It is just like a majestical underground palace indeed. The two paths respectively leading to the two tombs are paralleled, and the distance between them is about 19 meters (about 21 yards). In the hall where the casket of Liu Zhu lies,

there is an interesting scene. The north wall of this hall reveals a silhouette of a life-sized person in Han clothing. He is in a position of greeting the guests. It is called the 'Greeting Chu Wang' (which means Liu Zhu). What's amazing is that this scene does not appear at first but gradually shaped after the tomb is opened to the public eye. It looks as if the Prince Liu Zhu is extending his greeting to the tourists. Here's some guide information in your travel of Guishan Han Tomb: Address: No.1 Sheshan,Wuchang City, Jiangsu Province.
