These days, the Jinsha Site Museum transforms into a dreamy otherworld of light at night. The destination in the western part of Sichuan province's capital, Chengdu, is hosting an 18-day lantern festival through Sunday to celebrate Spring Festival and the recent arrival of the Year of the Dragon. As such, the mythical creature appears in festive displays throughout the museum.

On the right side of the archaeological site's iconic sunbird statue is an imposing dragon lantern with its body coiled into five arches that draws visitors who take photos of it.
