In this mausoleum, which is also called the Yong Mausoleum, Emperor Wang Jiang, who lived from 847 to 918, is buried. In 891, he was appointed governor of Sichuan Province. He extended his influence to the surrounding provinces, and in 907, after the fall of the Tang dynasty, he declared himself emperor. Then he moved the capital of China to Chengdu.
This mausoleum is unusual in that the sarcophagus has no underground level, and also because the mausoleum is located right in the city. This distinguishes it from other tombs in China.
The building of the mausoleum is a circle with a diameter of 80 meters. The building is 15 meters high. The interior of the mausoleum is divided into three parts. In the central section is the emperor's coffin, as well as his statue. Tang Dynasty musicians are also depicted on the walls here. The pedestal on which the coffin stands is decorated with lions and dragons.
