The Wanshou Temple repair site open day event hosted by the Beijing Municipal Administration of Cultural Heritage and undertaken by Beijing Art Museum and other departments was held in Beijing on Thursday.
Wanshou Temple was built in 1577, and it was expanded several times during the Qing Dynasty. In May 2006, it was announced as part of the sixth batch of key national cultural relic preservation units. On March 15, 2018, the temple repair project was fully launched.
During the event, visitors walked into the construction site to understand the meaning of the repair background as explained by the staff, and to experience the traditional ancient building repair skills at close range. Photos: Li Hao/GT
