Zhaojun Tomb，which is called“Green Grave" of’‘Tmur Urhu:in Mongolian，is situated in the southern suburb of Hohhot， 9 kilometers away from the urban area. It is said that it is the tomb of Wang Zhaojun-a maid in the imperial palace of the Emperor Yuan Di of the Han Dynasty-volunteered to marry the chief Huhanye of Xiongnu Horde as a peace envoy. The tomb is an artificial earthen mound with a height of 33 meters. According to the legend，grass on the huge mound never turned yellow even when late autumn the green came.
Zhaojun Tomb is listed among the eight most popular scenic spots in Hohhot.
In front of the tomb，bronze statues of Wang Zhaojun and her husband ( Khan)，depict a vivid picture of them riding horses and talking to each other intimately. The statues are the symbol of the friendly relations between the Han nationality and the Hui nationality，which was greatly promoted by Wang Zhaojun.
Behind the statues，there are several steles displaying the praises bestowed upon Wang Zhaojun. Among them，the stele marked with the poems of Dong Biwu (a modern revolutionary and a politician)is the most notable one.
Behind the steles .stone stairs and a stone platform are connected with the Zhaojun Tomb. Upon the stone platform you can find a pavilion. The pavilion offers tourists a good position from which to overlook the scenery surrounding the tomb and the far away Mt. Yinshan.
Recently，the tomb area has been developed to include cultural facilities such as a Reception Room，Exhibition Room and Painting and Calligraphy Room. The tomb has now become one of the key cultural relics under the jurisdiction of Hohhot.
The tomb is famous for its spectacular scenery. The summer months are mild and the wild flowers and grasses grow in abundance， creating a beautiful natural picture together with the towering green trees. When autumn comes in September，unlike grasses which shriveled and yellow at this time of the year，the grass growing on the tomb is still green and vigorous.
