During the process of building the Beijing Cultural Silicon Valley, a large number of tombs of Tang Dynasty were found in Changgou township, southwest Beijing. With the approval of the State Administration of Cultural Heritage, from August 2012 to June 2013, the Cultural Heritage Research Institution of Beijing excavated the tombs and carried out on-site protection of the large numbers of murals and stone relics found. This has made a good start for long-time preservation and follow-up works such as preservation, display and planning. Currently, preservation and excavation works are underway.
