An exhibition featuring 138 cultural relics from the Tang Dynasty (618-907) opened at the Ningbo Museum on Aug 2, local media reported.
The cultural relics, which include ceramic figurines, gold (silver) wares, porcelains, jade and architectural components, were shipped from Xi'an Museum in Shaanxi province.
Through the exhibition, visitors can get a glimpse into the architecture, food culture and international exchanges that Xi'an, formerly known as Chang'an, had in the past.
Founded in the late 6th century, Chang'an was the largest capital city in the world at that time. It had a population of a million, including more than 50,000 people from outside the city.
The exhibition will run until Nov 7.
