Ordos enjoys a long history, and is one of the birthplaces of human civilization. As early as 30,007 years ago, “Hetao People” started to thrive on this vast land and created the phenomenal “Hetao culture”.

In the Shang Dynasty 3500 years ago, a significant page in the history of nomadic people was uncovered and a famous culture “Zhukaigou Culture” was developed, which marked the evolution of the nomadic population in the north from a primitive state to a civilized one.

Between 2800 BC and 2300 BC, “Ordos Bronze Culture” flourished, represented by bronze wares decorated by a variety of animal patterns. Entering the mid-15th century, the Ordos tribe responsible for guarding the mausoleum of Genghis Khan marched into Ordos from the Mongolian Plateau. The long history and unique location of Ordos has bred a regional culture with primitive simplicity and profound elegance.
