A Regional Centre for Two Millennia in Lingnan:
Photo Exhibition of the Archaeological Discoveries Made at the Palace of the Nanyue Kingdom

Since 1975, cultural remains dating from the Nanyue Kingdom during the Western Han and its succeeding periods have been excavated at the Site of the Palace of the Nanyue Kingdom. The discovery on site of the remains of palaces and garden ponds of the Nanyue Kingdom, and of others dating from the Southern Han Kingdom during the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms period is deeply significant as it suggests that the area was the city centre of Guangzhou for over a thousand years. The remnants unearthed from the site also give insights into Guangzhou’s role in East-West cultural exchange and the prosperity of the Maritime Silk Road.

Jointly presented by the Antiquities and Monuments Office and the Archaeological Site Museum of Nanyue Palace, this exhibition uses illustrations and literary compositions to showcase the archaeological excavations conducted on site and the remarkable discoveries unearthed.
