Survey of Ming Dynasty Great Wall increases its length by 2,551.8 km

www.chinaview.cn 2009-04-18

Quote:
BEIJING, April 18 (Xinhua) -- China Saturday revealed the findings of a two-year investigation of the length of the Great Wall in the Ming Dynasty era, which estimate it to be more than 2,551.8 kilometers longer than earlier thought.

The Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) Great Wall is 8851.8 kilometers long, said the State Administration of Cultural Heritage (SACH) and State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping (SBSM).

Their joint investigation has increased the length of the Ming Dynasty Great Wall by 2551.8 km.

The Ming portion of the Great Wall is the most visually striking and well-preserved portion of the world famous monument.

The Great Wall was originally built by China's first emperor Qin Shi Huang (259-210 BC) in the Warring States Period (475-221 BC). It was listed as a United Nations World Heritage Site in 1987.

The newest survey result shows that the Ming Dynasty Great Wall starts from the Hushan section of the Great Wall in northeastern Liaoning Province, and ends at Jiayu Pass in northwestern Gansu Province.

It passes through 10 provinces, cities and autonomous regions in north China, including Liaoning, Hebei, Tianjin, Beijing, Shanxi, Inner Mongolia, Shaanxi, Ningxia, Gansu and Qinghai.

It has an artificial wall of 6259.6 kilometers, 359.7 kilometers of trench cutting part, and 2232.5 kilometers of natural defensive barriers such as hills and rivers.

GPS positioning system, infrared range finder and other mapping technologies have been used during the survey. The survey will now go on to research the Qin and Han Dynasty Great Wall and other portions of the Great Wall, lasting until late 2010.

Great Wall of China

Quite surprised how steep the stairs are - some of them can be as high as 4-5 traditional bricks. Climbing up & down is really an experience but requires some foot muscles.

Here's Badaling and surroundings:

Hope you like them.

Danba Diaolou Buildings for Tibetan Ethnic Groups

Danba County is located at the east of Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, in western Sichuan Province. Danba means the town of rocks. Special geographical situation, geological condition and unique cultural background all attribute to the well-developed culture of Rock Buildings in Danba. Old Diaolou Buildings have a long and colourful history, and represent the masterpieces of Jiarong Tibetan architectural arts. Danba tops China, or even the world in terms of its quantity, density and types of old Diaolou Buildings. So far, it is the place that reserves the largest quantity of old Diaolou Buildings and villages in China, with the highest density, and is known for its rich styles and overall preservation.


The latest survey in 2004 demonstrates that there are 562 old Diaolou Buildings in the whole county. The shapes of old Diaolou Buildings in Danba are diversified, with quadrangular, pentagonal, octagonal and tridecanal towers. The majority of them are quadrangular Diaolou Buildings. Among them, only one tridecanal watchtower (incomplete) remains; of the 24 octagonal Diaolou Buildings, 10 of them remain intact, 9 of them lost their tops, and 5 of them were reduced to ruins; the only one pentagonal watchtower has been restored as original; of the 536 quadrangular towers, 216 of them remain intact, 74 of them were reduced to ruins.

The old watchtower takes up an area of 25~120 m2, with a height varying from 10 to 60 m. Mountain rocks and slates, yellow mud and timber are adopted as the main building materials. With a relatively bigger base, the Diaolou Buildings narrow upward to the top. The towers were built with rocks and slates of various sizes. As many walls were built with rocks weighing over several hundred kilos, the walls prove firm, thick and solid. They are built with well-leveled surface and pointed corners, making the tower stand straight and upright. The function of the old Diaolou Buildings varies, combining military and residential purposes. They fall mainly into two categories: folk towers and residential towers. By its own particular function, they can be further labeled as war flame tower, strategic pass tower, official village tower, boundary tower, scripture tower, and tower in houses, etc. The old Diaolou Buildings in Danba have survived wars, weather, and earthquakes. With a long history, they rise straight from the land, towering loftily, solid and strong as usual. Some of them stand as bows, forming quite marvelous spectacle, making one amazed at its refined and intricate arts of building. In 2006, the old Diaolou Buildings in Danba were enlisted as the Cultural Relics of National Importance by the State Department.

World Heritage Committee to meet in Brasilia to inscribe new heritage sites

July 23, 2010

Quote:
Representatives from more than 100 countries will meet in Brasilia next week to discuss requests for the inscription of new sites on UNESCO's World Heritage List.

Brazilian Culture Minister Joao Luiz Silva Ferreira, who is also president of the World Heritage Committee, on Thursday stressed the importance of government action and expressed concerns about threats the economic growth could impose on the heritage.

"We need a very clear commitment to enhancing government action and establishing strict criteria to ensure the preservation," he said.

Director General of the UNESCO Irina Bokova and Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva will attend the meeting, which will take place between July 25 and Aug. 3.

This year, a total of 32 new properties have been submitted for inscription on the World Heritage List: six natural, 24 cultural and two mixed (both natural and cultural at the same time).

They include Darwin's Landscape Laboratory in Britain; Palaeolithic Rock Art Ensemble in Siega Verde, shared by Portugal and Spain; the historic monuments of Dengfeng in central China's Henan Province and the Ngorogoro Conservation Area in Tanzania.

Besides, the committee will review the state of conservation of the 31 sites on the List of World Heritage in Danger and may decide to add to that list new properties whose preservation requires special attention.

Sites are said to be at risk for several reasons, such as pollution, urban development, poorly managed mass tourism, wars and natural disasters, which may reduce the outstanding universal value for which they were proclaimed world heritage.

Currently, the World Heritage List recognizes 890 properties of "outstanding universal value", located in 148 States Parties to the World Heritage Convention.

The 1972 Convention, with 187 States Parties, encourages international cooperation to safeguard the common heritage of humanity.

The World Heritage Committee, responsible for implementing the Convention, comprises representatives of 21 countries, elected by the States Parties for a term of six years.

Every year, the Committee adds to the list new sites proposed by the States Parties.

Mount Wutai (2009) 五台山

With its five flat peaks, Mount Wutai is a sacred Buddhist mountain. The cultural landscape is home to forty-one monasteries and includes the East Main Hall of Foguang Temple, the highest surviving timber building of the Tang dynasty, with life-size clay sculptures. It also features the Ming dynasty Shuxiang Temple with a huge complex of 500 statues representing Buddhist stories woven into three-dimensional pictures of mountains and water. Overall, the buildings on the site catalogue the way in which Buddhist architecture developed and influenced palace building in China for over a millennium. Mount Wutai, literally, 'the five terrace mountain', is the highest in Northern China and is remarkable for its morphology of precipitous slopes with five open treeless peaks. Temples have been built on this site from the 1st century AD to the early 20th century.

Historic Monuments of Dengfeng in “The Centre of Heaven and Earth”

Mount Songshang is considered to be the central sacred mountain of China. At the foot of this 1500 metre high mountain, close to the city of Dengfeng in Henan province and spread over a 40 square-kilometre circle, stand eight clusters of buildings and sites, including three Han Que gates - remains of the oldest religious edifices in China -, temples, the Zhougong Sundial Platform and the Dengfeng Observatory. Constructed over the course of nine dynasties, these buildings are reflections of different ways of perceiving the centre of heaven and earth and the power of the mountain as a centre for religious devotion. The historical monuments of Dengfeng include some of the best examples of ancient Chinese buildings devoted to ritual, science, technology and education.

Chinese historic monuments of Dengfeng added to World Heritage list

English.news.cn 2010-08-01


Quote:
BRASILIA, July 31 (Xinhua) -- The UNESCO's World Heritage Committee decided on Saturday, at its 34th meeting in Brasilia, to add the historic monuments of Dengfeng in central China's Henan province to the World Cultural Heritage List.

Tong Mingkang, deputy chief of China's State Administration of Cultural Heritage, said China would protect its World Heritage sites effectively under the World Heritage Convention so as to make them better benefit the Chinese people.

The 1972 Convention, with 187 signatories, encourages international cooperation to safeguard the common heritage of humanity.

The historic monuments of Dengfeng in "The Center of Heaven and Earth," which include the ancient architectural complex at Mount Songshan and the site of the Xia-dynasty capital, are situated in and around Mount Songshan in Henan.

The complex consists of 13 ancient structures and sites, such as Shaolin Temple, Songyang Academy, Taishi, Shaoshi and Qimu Towers and the pagoda of the Songyue Temple.

The West Lake in China's eastern Hangzhou city is ready to bid for the UNESCO's World Cultural Heritage next year, said Tong.

The World Heritage Committee is assessing the inscription of China's mountainous southeastern Danxia beauty spot on its World Natural Heritage List.

This year, a total of 32 new properties have been seeking recognition of the World Heritage List: six natural, 24 cultural and two mixed (both natural and cultural at the same time).

The World Heritage List identifies 890 sites of "outstanding universal value," located in 148 states parties to the World Heritage Convention. With the newly-included monuments in Dengfeng, China now has 39 properties inscribed on the list.
