Museum of the Mausoleum of the Nanyue King Description

One of the most significant archaeological discoveries in China, the 2,000-year-old mausoleum of King Zhao Mo showcases a great trove of artifacts, including the renowned jade burial suit. Apart from Chinese artifacts, some pieces from Central Asia have been unearthed at the site, such as a Persian silver box, the earliest imported product found to date. From 137 BC to 122 BC, Zhao ruled the short-lived Kingdom of Nanyue, which consists of parts of Guangdong, Guangxi and Yunnan provinces, as well as northern Vietnam. Hidden 20 meters underground, the tomb was brought to light in 1983, while the museum was opened above it in 1988.
