Chinese Pyramids and the Sun

Chinese pyramids are ancient burial mounds of several early emperors and empresses of China and their relatives. Many pyramids are located near Xi'an, in Shaanxi Province. In this province, in the Lintong district, we find the huge Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor, Shi Huangdi, accompanied by his large Terracotta Army. The pyramids continued to be built for several centuries, during the following dynasties that ruled China. The shape of the Chinese pyramids is different from those of the ancient Egypt, because they have usually a flat top.
