Xinhua)  09:07, July 22, 2013  

Cultural relics preservation technicists repair walls of the Jiayu Pass, the starting point of a section of the Great Wall constructed during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) in Jiayuguan City, northwest China's Gansu Province, July 21, 2013. Built 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 poured 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 Sunday that the maintenance project, the largest one since the Pass was set up, has entered the critical stage. (Xinhua/Chen Bin)
