Emperor Qin Tomb

Claimed by many to be the Eighth Wonder of the World, the terra-cotta army was discovered in 1974 by farmers digging a well near the tomb of Emperor Qin. Forbidden Gardens has 6,000 1/3 scale terra-cotta soldiers in formation as they were buried in the 3rd century BC.

Forbiddin City

The Forbidden City is laid out in all it's splendor in a one to twenty scale model of the palace buildings with hundreds of figurines displaying the lifestyle of Imperial China. Complete with thousands of intricately detailed and elaborately landscaped miniatures of the palaces and their occupants, the Forbidden City rests within a 40,000 square foot pavilion.

Lodge For The Calming Of The Heart

This black-roofed palace was a vacation getaway for those who lived and worked in the Forbidden City. Built in the 1700s, this location was ideal for scholars and guests to rest, reflect, and get back to nature. Come walk around the Lodge and feel the relaxing sensation that it brought the Emperors and Empress's throughout the years.
