One more Chinese property was inscribed on the UNESCO's World Heritage List Monday during the 32nd session of the World Heritage Committee that is taking place in this eastern Canadian city.

The 21 members of the committee, during their Monday's afternoon session, agreed to add Mount Sanqingshan National Park in Jiangxi Province in central east China, on the World Heritage List as a natural site, bringing the total number of Chinese properties on the list to 37.

Mount Sanqingshan National Park, located in northeast Jiangxi Province, displays a unique array of forested, fantastically shaped granite pillars and peaks concentrated in a relatively small area.

Mount Sanqingshan's remarkable granite rock formations combine with diverse forest, near and distant vistas, and striking meteorological effects to create a landscape of exceptional landscape quality.

On Sunday, Tulou, the unique residential architecture of Fujian Province in southeastern China, was added to the World Heritage List as a cultural site.
