Tang Dynasty tombs in Shanxi, China

My Chinese surname on my mother's side, therefore not really my surname is Teoh, equivalent to Tang, a China expert told me.

This mausoleum and attendant murals and portrait sculptures show how international the Tang were. e.g.murals of foreign diplomats.

I was researching only female emperor Wu Zetian who was married to 3 successive emperors. 


Wish I could go but maybe one of you have been already.  If so pl let me know.

I research mostly to write fiction.
