Facts about Chengdu

Chengdu at a Glance

Chengdu's rich history dates back 2,600 years. In the early fifth century BC, the ninth king of the state of Shu moved his capital to the city's current location. Over a thousand years later, the discovery of the Jinsha site suggested that the area of Chengdu was the centre of the Bronze Age of the Sanxingdui culture, which existed around the same time as the establishment of the state of Shu prior to its annexation by Qin in 611 BC. Chengdu was also the birthplace of the first widely used paper money in the world, and because of the West Han Dynasty, it has now become one of the top six cities. Now, the city is blessed with a lifestyle of leisure.
