Committee Decisions

CONF 208 VIII.C

Inscription: The Ancient City of Ping Yao (China)

The Ancient City of Ping Yao

812

China

C (ii)(iii)(iv)

The Committee decided to inscribe this property on the basis of criteria (ii), (iii) and (iv), considering that the Ancient City of Ping Yao is an outstanding example of a Han Chinese city of the Ming and Qing Dynasties (14th-20th centuries) that has retained all its features to an exceptional degree and in doing so provides a remarkably complete picture of cultural, social, economic, and religious development during one of the most seminal periods of Chinese history.
