Terracotta Warriors and Horses Pit 1 is the largest one among the three excavated pits. Covering an area of 14,260 square meters, the pit is composed of the vanguard, the main body, the flank and the rearguard.

Pit 2 is the grandest of the three pits. In this pit, there is a large L-shaped combat formation composed of chariot soldiers, foot soldiers and a troop of cavalry. It is the backbone of the battle array.

Pit 3 is the smallest pit and also a component of Pit 1 and Pit 2. Seen from the layout, it was probably the headquarters or the command center for the military groups in the other two pits.

The artisans in Qin Dynasty elaborately painted the terracotta warriors, horses and chariots with rich colors after they were molded and baked. But the colorful paintings peeled off immediately when exposed to air.

The Kneeling Archers warriors are quite unique. They were in a position of kneeling instead of standing in the pit. The artisans in the Qin Dynasty designed these soldier figures strikingly true to life.

The two bronze chariots and horses is considered to be the earliest, largest and best-preserved bronze chariots and horses in the history of Chinese archaeology.

Visitors can see two precious sets of bronze chariots in this hall and other valuable exhibits excavated from the Mausoleum of the Emperor Qin Shi Huang.

Besides the exquisite Terracotta Warriors and Horses, Visitors can also appreciate many coins in the Museum of Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses.
