Ding Ling (Ding Tomb of Ming Tombs)

Ding Ling was constructed on a vast scale with magnificent buildings, and ranks the third after Chang Ling and Yong Ling. Ding Ling is the tomb of Emperor Zhu Yijjun, whose reign title is Wan Li, the 13th Emperor of Ming Dynasty. He was born in 1563, died in 1620 at the age of 58. He ruled China for 48 years from 1573 to 1620, the longest ruling period of all the 16 emperors in the Ming Dynasty. The construction of his tomb started in 1584 when Emperor Wan Li was as young as only 22 years old. It took 6 years and was completed in 1590. This tomb is the only one of the thirteen Ming Tombs excavated so far, the excavation work started in May 1956 and it took two years and was completed in 1958. The Underground Palace is open to the public; we can visit the three coffins for Emperor Wan Li and two empresses inside. What kind of stories behind them? It is a big curiosity.
