The 132,000-square-meter Zhaojun Museum was built to memorialize Wang Zhaojun, a famous ancient Chinese beauty of the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.–A.D. 220). She volunteered to leave the imperial court in Chengdu and marry a ruler of a Hun tribe in order to establish friendly relations between the tribe and the Han Dynasty. Zhaojun was eventually buried in Hohhot, the capital of present-day Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The museum incorporates the site of Zhaojun's tomb and a museum of Hun culture.
