The ruins were first found in 1976 and it was believed that it was a small city, but many years of work and an arduous study carried out last year, came to find remains of its wall at a considerable distance from the center.

These walls spread over an area of ​​4.25 square kilometers, what makes it the largest ever found in China. In addition, a piece of mural has been found that archaeologists consider the oldest in the country.
