However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
More than 400,000 cultural relics are housed in the Nanjing Museum, arranged by date from the 11th century BC up to the beginning of the People Republic in the year 1949.
