Tomb of Princess Wang Zhaojun

Covering 1.4 hectare in area and standing 33 meters high, the tomb of Princess Wang Zhaojun is located on the southern outskirts, nine kilometers from Hohhot. It tells a moving story some 2,000 years ago.

Wang Zhaojun, also named Qiang, was born in Baofu Village in Xingshan County, Hubei Province. During the reign of Emperor Yuandi of the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.-A.D.220), Wang was chosen to serve in the imperial court. In 33 B.C., the king of a minority group called Xiongnu (Hun) made an offer of marriage, and Wang volunteered to marry him, who lived far away. She made great contribution to the harmonious relations between the Hans and the Xiongnus, which kept friendly for 60 years. As it is believed, "Wang Zhaojun is the symbol of national unity, and her tomb is a monument to national unity."
