Jiayuguan Attractions

Situated in the desert 20 km northeast of Jiayuguan city, Wei-Jin Art Gallery is not really an art gallery but ancient tombs with wall paintings. There are more than 1400 tombs, which could date back 220-419 AD during Wei and Jin periods.

All the paintings are on the bricks. Maybe one brick with one painting, half a brick with a painting or several bricks with an interlink painting. The painting contents are from all aspects of actual life. Then visitors can know well about people life and Chinese history at that time. These paintings also provide reference for our scholar to study the society civilization of that history period.
