The Tombs of the Tobu Kings

The Tombs of the Tobu Kings Travel Guide

Brief Introduction
There is a group of tombs on the top of Mount Muri in Qungjie County, the former capital of the Tobu Kingdom, covering an area of 3 square km. These are the tombs of the kings and queens of the Tobu Kingdom.

According to historical documents, there were originally 13 tombs at the site although today only three are visible. It is said that King Songtsen Gampo and the Tang princess Wen Chen, are buried here. Songsten Gampo´s tomb is the biggest here with a small temple standing on top of it.

The tombs are protected by the mountains in back and guarded by stone lions erected on the mountain slope. There are stelae
among the tombs to honor the dead, suggesting that by that time the Tibetans had developed a sophisticated system for burying their dead.
