Stone tablet of Qing Dynasty uncovered in Xinjiang
New Delhi: A stone tablet of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) has been discovered in northwest China`s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.
Archaeologists unearthed the tablet, measuring 71 meters high, at the Tianchi Scenic Zone in the Tianshan Mountains of Xinjiang in October, reports China.org.cn.
It was engraved with the construction details of a monastery built by Qing`s Emperor Guangxu in 1890 at the Bogda Mountain, the highest point of the eastern Tianshan Mountains.
The discovery, which is a first for Xinjiang, is significant for the study of mountain sacrifice in the Qing Dynasty, said Yu Zhiyong, chief of the cultural relics and archaeological institute of Xinjiang.
