Summer Palace Unveils World Heritage Tablet
The tablet was designed by well known Chinese architects and archeologists. With a bronze piece inlaid in white marble stone, the tablet is 2 meters high, 1.7 meters wide, and 0.25 meters thick.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization added the Summer Palace and the Temple of heaven to its list of World Heritage sites in December 1998. So far, among the 522 cultural sites under world protection, 23 sites are in China, with five in the capital.
At the front of the tablet are Chinese and English versions for "World Heritage" and a symbol of the World Heritage Committee, and at the back the exact time the Summer Palace was included on the World Heritage list.
