China Invests 570 Million yuan (RMB) in Repairing 22 Cultural Relics in Tibet
Recently, a key project of cultural relics protection was initiated in Tibetan Autonomous Region. As the largest project of cultural relics protection in terms of both investment and maintenance scales of Tibetan Autonomous Region, it involves 22 classified cultural relics which are distributed in the four major areas of Lhasa, Lhoka, Xigaze, and Ngari in Tibet, including the important temples like Tashilhunpo Monastery, Jokhang Temple, Ramoche Temple, and Trundruk Monastery, and the famous historic architectures and cultural relic sites like the Guge Kingdom ruins and the Mount Dzong (Dzongri) Anti-British Monument in Gyangze County. The maintenance cost of 570 million yuan (RMB) comes completely from the national fund allocation.
It is known that before the project, the Central Government of China has already allocated more than 700 million yuan (RMB) in succession on the protection and maintenance of several key cultural relics in Tibet, among which 330 million was used as a special fund for the protection and protection of the Potala Palace, the Norbulingka, and the Sakya Monastery.
