Xi'an Off The Beaten Path: 30 reviews and 49 photos

by bhemak

The forest of steles (steles are the big stone tablets sometimes with script on them) is a museum to these fun looking things. The museum also has other big stone items like tombs, and animal statues. Fun stuff, but mabe a little overpriced for the quantity.

One of the stele's is the Analect from Confucius which was interesting to read them before and then see where they were translated from.

It is located near the south part of the city wall just east of the south gate.
