Gansu Flying Horse 铜奔马 (Bronze Running Horse) and the giant tombstone are the main attraction of Leitai Park. The tombstone was dated back from Eastern Han Dynasty (220AD), which is now part of Leitai Park. Gansu Flying Horses were unearthed in this tomb. An army including 99 bronze chariots was then cast and displayed in Leitai Park near the tomb to signify that Gansu Flying Horses were unearthed in this site.

Gansu Flying Horse unearthed from the tomb is listed as national heritage. It also got the term ‘Galloping Horse Treading on a Flying Swallow’.
