King of Zheng Tomb and Chariot Burial
May 2015 • Solo
Reconstructed tomb of King of Zheng State, c. 575 BC, whose discovery in 1923 formed the nucleus of the Henan Provincial Museum and contributed to the birth of modern Chinese archaeology. The original bronze vessels are displayed at the Henan Provincial Museum in Zhengzhou or the National Museum or Palace Museum in Beijing. The largest chariot burial here is part of the Zheng King's tomb, with several other tombs and three other chariot burials housed in the two main buildings. A new museum of tomb artifacts was recently added. The fourth chariot burial and several other tombs are in an annex to the main building, but as of October 6, 2015, are not yet open to the public. At least 11 other chariot burials and dozens of tombs lie nearby, though are not yet excavated. This is the best ancient historical site in Xinzheng and one of the best in Henan Province. It currently costs 30 RMB.
