Museum of the tomb of Han Guangling King

Covering a hilly area of 27,000 square meters, the museum displays the tombs of Liu Xu, the first-generation Guangling King assigned to Yangzhou during the mid-Western Han Dynasty (206 B.C-A.D. 24), and his wife. Both tombs were built in the high grade reserved for emperors and kings and remain in good condition. Liu Xu's tomb alone occupies 230 square meters. An entirely nanmu structure, the burial chamber was constructed without using a single nail. Items reflecting life at time are exhibited in the museum.
