    very educational archeological site, museum and park

    We spent several hours touring the site and wandering the grounds. The findings are presented in a pleasant and understandable manner. The English audio guide is well done and worth the 20 yuan charge...

Additional Information

Introduction

The Jinsha site contains the remains of the Shang and Zhou dynasties. The Jinsha Site Museum is built on the Jinsha site and consists of buildings such as the Heritage Museum, the Exhibition Hall and the Jinsha Theater. The discovery of the Jinsha site has wound back the urban history of Chengdu to 3,000 years ago. Among the many exhibits in the museum, the most famous is the "Golden Sun Bird Gold Foil". The gold foil is round and comprises the inner ring of the sun and the outer ring of a divine bird. It expresses the superior standards of the gold craftsmanship of the ancient kingdom of Shu. The relics hall of the museum is the excavation place of the Jinsha relics commemorative site, where visitors can watch the archaeological excavation happening at close range.
