This mural is 2.6 metres wide and 1.7 meters tall, and shows people worshipping buddhas, of which there are more than 50 depicted here.

Upon first examination, archaeologists believe the work was created during the Tang Dynasty, about a thousand years ago.

This kind of mural is rarely seen in Sichuan Province. It provides valuable insight into the culture, economy and life at the time. For now, the site has been fenced off as local authorities plan further research.
