Check out an amazing aerial view of the Museum of King's Six-Horse Chariot of Zhou Dynasty in Luoyang, Henan province! Located to the northeast of the Eastern Zhou Dynasty Royal City Ruins, the museum is built at the site of royal burial pits, where a chariot driven by six horses dating back to the Eastern Zhou Dynasty (770-256 BC) was discovered in 2002. This discovery proved the accuracy of a historical text describing a king riding in a chariot driven by six steeds.

The museum also introduces the Eastern Zhou royal city, presents new archaeological discoveries from the city ruins, and showcases precious cultural relics from the period.
