Xi’an: The Terracotta Warriors, Muslim Market, Small Wild Goose Pagoda, The City Walls

Thousands of guardians, all unique with different roles, over 2,200 years old, protecting the Emporer Qin Shi Huang.Unfortunately my camera was playing up so I only got photos on an iPhone 🙁 

The Muslim market is a fun and quirky place to wander, meet the locals and try new food and drinks.

Treasures in many forms, stored here from India.  The Small Wild Goose Pagoda was built in 707 AD.

The Ancient City Walls, built to protect Xi’an.

    I cant remember, did they find the warriors like that (IE, walk into a room, and find them) or were they dug up archeologist style?
