Terra Cotta Soldiers in Pit One

Terra Cotta Soldiers in Pit One, originally uploaded by yellojkt.

The terra cotta soldiers in Xian are a major tourist attraction. They were made and buried around 200 AD and only discovered a couple of decades ago.

The building was built around the pit where the soldiers were discovered and is bigger than an aircraft hangar.
