The tomb of Nanyue King Wen was discovered in downtown Guangzhou in 1983. The tomb was completely untouched since it was sealed in more than 2000 years ago, and had yielded more than 1000 artifacts, including gold and silver wares, jades, a chariot, musical instruments, etc. that is the most luxurious ever found in Lingnan region throughout history. The tomb is made of hundreds of huge red sandstone which is a unique example of burial structure in Western Han period. Besides the remains of Nanyue King Wen, 15 human sacrifices were also found. The discovery of Mausoleum of Nanyue King is a significant archaeological find to understand the history and culture of Nanyue Kingdom.
