Located 1,000 meters northeast of Maoling Mausoleum, Huo Qubing's tomb is a cone-shaped soil and rock mound, adjacent to the Maoling Museum, and surrounded by a scenic environment. Huo Qubing came from Pingyang (now called Linfeng in Shanxi Province) and was the son of Wei Qing's elder sister (Wei was a famous general of Emperor Wu Di). Born in the first year of the reign of Emperor Wu Di (140 BC), Huo Qubing was a young military expert during the Western Hah Dynasty, who was commanding troops by the age of eighteen. He led his troops beyond the Great Wall six times to fight the Xiongnu (Hun) who had been infringing on Han Dynasty territory repeatedly, finally defeating the Hun aggressors. []
