Tombs of the Kings

Tombs of the Tibetan Kings, covering a total of 385 square meters, is on the top of Mount Muri in Qungjie County. The tombs are protected by the mountains in back and guarded by stone lions erected on the mountain slope. There are steles among the tombs to honor the dead, suggesting that by that time the Tibetans had developed a sophisticated system for burying their dead. One stele in particular is carved with floating clouds and the four corners of the stele are turned up toward the sky. Among the tombs from the 29th king to the 40th kings, the last king of the Turpan regime, King Songtsen Gampo's is the most famous.
