Dingling Tomb

 

Ding Ling The splendid Ding Ling (dìng líng 定陵) is the mausoleum of the 13th emperor of the Ming Dynasty, Zhu Yijun (Zhū Yì jūn 朱翊钧). He was known as Emperor Wanli (wàn lì 万历) after the self-proclaimed name of his ruling period. He ruled his great empire for 48 years, the longest reign in his dynasty. Historical documents reveal that the total cost for the tomb amazingly reached over 8 million taels (300 tonnes) of silver, which was approximately equivalent to the entire tax income for two years of then government. Ding Ling is only the third largest tomb after Chang Ling and Yong Ling. Its exquisite decorations, however, enormously surpass the other two. Most of the structure above the ground has disappeared except the Soul Tower. It is a magnificent building wholly made of stone and bricks, which may explains why it survived the centuries.
