Map of the Scenic Spot - 4

As a tradition of that time, the husband and wife were buried separately in the same burial place. And also it was a good choice to have the tomb built half way up the hill. The laborers spent over 40 years digging the tomb caves and polishing them with the most primitive working equipments and methods. Liu Sheng's Tomb is 51.7 meters long, 37.5 meters wide, and 6.8 meters tall, with a total volume of 2700 cubic meters. The tomb is made of the passageway, the southern and northern side tunnel, the middle hall and the back hall. It is in the back hall that the coffin was rested.
