Ancient tower undergoes repairs in Sichuan

Photos taken on Nov. 14 show Pingyangfujun Tower built during the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220AD). The tower, located in the city of Mianyang, Sichuan province, is currently being repaired. Pingyangfujun Tower has been included on the State Council's list of nationally protected cultural relics since 1961. It is key to the study of architecture, art, religion and social life in the Eastern Han Dynasty. At the time, such towers were erected next to palaces, temples and graves to illustrate owners’ social status. (Photo: Yang Yong/China News Services)
