The Mausoleum is where eleven princes of the Jingjiang family during Ming dynasty were buried. The site covers an area over 100 square km with more than 300 tombs scattering. In front of each tomb stands Huabiao(ornamental column erected in front of palace, tombs), official stone statues, various animals (tiger, lion, unicorn).
