An exhibition, celebrating the 60th anniversary of the peaceful liberation of Tibet, is now on display at the Beijing Cultural Palace of Nationalities.
The exhibition consists of four galleries that show the economic, political, cultural, ecological and social developments in Tibet from 1951 to 2011 through thousands of pictures, videos and precious historical materials. The State Council Information Office, the Tibet Autonomous Region's government and Xinhua news agency organized the show.
One woman, who had taught in Tibet for 35 years and preferred to be referred to as a teacher instead of her name, really enjoyed the exhibition.
"The change in Tibet in the past 60 years is brilliant," she said. "The villages, cities, roads, living places, everything is different."
She's retired and living in Beijing and appreciates seeing how it evolved.
"I'm still proud of the great change in Tibet and hope it will become better in future," the former teacher said.
The exhibition attracts thousands of visitors every day, said a staff member at the palace. People from all walks of life, including students, soldiers, workers and officers, stroll through the exhibition.
Tibet was peacefully liberated on May 23, 1951, when representatives of both China's central government and the former local government of Tibet signed a 17-article agreement in Beijing.
