In 493, the Northern Wei Dynasty moved its capital to Luoyang, and used political means to force the people to adopt Han family names, speak Chinese, wear Han-style clothes, marry Han women, and follow Han folklore and customs. The Northern Wei rulers also promoted Buddhism by chiseling grottoes, building Buddhist temples, and personally preaching Buddhist scriptures.
