Cultural relics preservation technicists repair walls of Jiayu Pass
Photo taken on July 21, 2013 shows a gate tower of the Jiayu Pass, the starting point of a section of the Great Wall built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), under repair, in Jiayuguan City, northwest China's Gansu Province. Constructed in 1372, the Jiayu Pass also served as a vital passage on the ancient Silk Road. It was listed on UNESCO's World Heritage List in 1987. China has spent 2.03 billion yuan (about 328 million US dollars) in maintaining the Jiayu Pass, also including the construction of a world culture heritage inspection center and a heritage protection and display project at the end of 2011. The local cultural relics bureau announced that the maintenance project, the largest one since the Pass was set up, has entered the critical stage. (Xinhua/Chen Bin)
