Site Museum / 金沙遗址 In 2001 archaeologists made a historic discovery
in Chéngdū’s western suburbs: they unearthed a major site containing ruins of
the 3000-year-old Shu kingdom. This excellent, expansive museum includes the
excavation site and beautiful displays of many of the uncovered objects, which
were created between 1200 and 600 BC.
Like the discoveries farther outside the city at Sānxīngduī , the 6000 or so
relics include both functional and decorative items, from pottery and tools to
jade artefacts, stone carvings and ornate gold masks. A large number of elephant
tusks were also unearthed here.
Take bus 901 from Xīnnánmén bus station, or metro line 2 to Yinpintianxia.

or six different teahouses; the same again can be found on the next. It's a
density that persists whether you're in the heart of the city or in the suburbs.
