China’s third national survey into cultural relics, which lasted more than four years, saw the registration of over 766,700 fixed cultural relics, of which, 536,000 were newly registered and over 1,200 were newly found in Beijing, according to statistics released at a video conference on Dec. 29.

The survey began in April 2007 and ended in December 2011, and involved six categories of fixed cultural relics, including ancient heritage sites, ancient tombs, ancient buildings, Buddhist grottoes and stone inscriptions, and historic sites and buildings in modern times.

These cultural relics can be further divided into 59 subcategories. In addition, more than 230,000 fixed cultural relics were already registered during previous surveys.
