Prince Jingjiang Tombs Take on New Outlook in Guilin

The project to renovate the group of tombs of Prince Jingjiang of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) is now nearing completion in Guilin city, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

The group of tombs, covering an area of 105 square km, is a government-designated priority cultural relic unit under special state protection. It has 300 carved stones and 300 tombs of members of the Prince Jingjiang including eleven princes, their

wives, and generals, etc. The group of tombs is regarded as the largest and best-preserved group of tombs of the Ming Dynasty princes.

The Guilin municipal government invited professional archaistic architects to take charge of this project. The group of tombs has taken on a new outlook after 18 months of renovation, and is ready to receive tourists.
