With the goal of maintaining Tibetan historical and cultural relics, 22 protection projects are underway, using total investments of around 384 million yuan out of the 434 million yuan approved, according to a meeting of a Tibetan local cultural relics bureau.

The 22-station recovering journey set out from Tashihunpo Monastery in April 2008. It travels alongside 15 historical and cultural sites, influential temples as well as seven historical sites, such as Jokhang Monastery, Ramoche Monastery and Drepung Monastery, which demonstrate the fact that Tibet has been effectively governed by the dynasties' central power throughout history. Xinhua contributed to the story.
