Mausoleum of the Nányuè King information
This superb mausoleum from the 2000-year-old Nányuè kingdom is one of China’s best museums. It houses the tomb of Zhao Mo, second king of Nányuè, who was sent south by the emperor in 214 BC to quell unrest and established a sovereign state with Guǎngzhōu as its capital. Don’t miss Zhao Mo’s jade burial suit – the precious stone was thought to preserve the body.
