Explore the heritage of the kingdom of Shu with a visit to the remains of an ancient Chinese city. The archaeological site and museum at Jinsha feature ruins and relics more than 3,000 years old, giving you a look back at one of civilisation's early chapters.

Located amid a residential district in western Chengdu, the Jinsha site lets you see the foundations of a community that thrived in the 11th century BC. Discovered only in 2001, the excavated city features the remains of a palatial building, a residential area, a sacrificial area, and a burial site, along with displays that show you some of the artefacts unearthed from each location.

Nearby, the Jinsha Site Museum hosts a collection of the artefacts themselves, from carved stones and bronze pieces to jade and gold relics whose designs illustrate the unique culture that thrived in the region. Check out a multimedia display that compares the Jinsha culture with its contemporary neighbors, get a look at the iconic golden mask, and take some time to relax in the nearby garden in the shade of some ancient trees.
