After visiting the Jade Factory, we headed for the Ming Tombs, the resting place of 13 of the 16 emperors from the Ming dynasty. The Chang Ling tomb, the final resting place of the Emperor Yongle (1360-1424), was the first built and is the most impressive. The underground vault where the Emperor and Empress are believed to be buried has not been excavated.
