Yang Guifei was the Emperor Tang Ming Huang's concubine who hung herself to save her lover's name and the empire.

However, as the ground around the tomb began to disintegrate, authorities put a stop to this romantic practice by building a blue wall around the tomb! In the corridors surrounding the courtyard of the tomb, the work of numerous famous writers is displayed, depicting their views on this tragic love story.
