China Spends Millions to Protect Koguryo Kingdom Site

The ancient Koguryo Kingdom capital city and tombs were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2004 for their representation of “human creative genius” and early examples of mountain cities and tomb construction. Dating back approximately 2,000 years, the site is located in Ji’an, a small town in northeast China and includes the archaeological remains of three cities; 37+ tombs, including those of imperial and noble families; and a large palace. In order to maintain these cultural relics, China has invested approximately $45.5 million which has been for tomb mural preservation, constructing the Ji’an Museum and other preservation projects. The museum features more than 1,000 cultural relics on display.
