                                    World heritage grottoes to reopen to tourists

                                    2020-05-18 09:10:27

                                    LANZHOU, May 9 (Xinhua) -- The Mogao Grottoes, a renowned UNESCO World Heritage site in northwest China's Gansu Province, will reopen on Sunday after being closed for months due to the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), local authorities said Friday.

                                    The well-known tourist site will strictly control daily visits to less than 30 percent of its previous maximum visits, or about 1,800 tickets per day, while the digital center and display room will remain closed until further notice, said Dunhuang Academy that administers the heritage.

                                    Visitors are required to book tickets online, have their temperatures taken and wear masks during their visits, and group visits will not be accepted yet, said the academy, adding that medical workers will be given free admission by the end of this year.

                                    The Mogao Grottoes has been offering online exhibitions on platforms including its official website, social media platform WeChat and video-sharing apps for visitors trapped at home.

                                    The national museum, first constructed in 366 A.D., is home to collections of Buddhist artwork -- more than 2,000 colored sculptures and 45,000 square meters of murals -- in 735 caves carved along a cliff by ancient worshippers.
