1st Xiongnu museum opens
    2017-August-9  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE first museum on Xiongnu, otherwise known as the Hun tribes, opened in Hohhot, capital city of North China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, Saturday.

The Xiongnu, an alliance of nomadic tribes, emerged at the end of the third century B.C., and had a huge impact on the history of China and the world.

The Xiongnu Museum, built inside the famous Zhaojun Museum tourism area, is located on the outskirts of Hohhot.

Wang Zhaojun, who also went by the name Wang Qiang, was a concubine to Emperor Yuandi during a time of hostility between the Hans and Xiongnu in the Western Han Dynasty (206 B.C. – A.D. 24).

She volunteered to serve as an ambassador for peace, leaving the imperial court for the frontier to marry the Chanyu, chieftain of the Xiongnu in ancient China. Wang has since been a symbol of harmony among the different ethnic groups in China.

A large number of Xiongnu cultural relics are being exhibited at the Xiongnu Museum.
