The Ming Tombs at Winter

Youngster me at the Ming Tombs

Let me give you a visual tour of the Ming Tombs in Beijing. A UNESCO World heritage site, the Ming Dynasty Tombs are a collection of tombs or mausoleums built by the emperors of China during the Ming dynasty. though the first Ming tomb is built on the ancient Chinese capital of Nanjing, most of the tombs can be found in Beijing  which is collectively known as the Thirteen Tombs of Ming Dynasty.
