Publish Time: 2018-03-27 Author: Chen Man From: Kangba TV

Tibetan History and Culture Exhibition, which is now ongoing in Capital Museum, Beijing, has enjoyed popularity among people.

The rare cultural relics have drawn much attention.

216 pieces of cultural relics from Beijing, Tibet Autonomous Region, Chongqing, Hebei and Qinghai provinces are exhibited.

Among the 180 pieces of cultural relics provided by cultural institutions, museums and monasteries of Tibet, 90.8% of them have been listed as national rare cultural relics.

Some pieces from Jokhang Temple, Tashilhunpo Monastery and Sakya Monastery are displayed for the first time.

The gilding silver kettle

The gilding silver kettle is preserved in Jokhang Temple.

The kettle is big, with complicated patterns which remind people of the frescos in Dunhuang, Gansu Province, and call people’s attention.

As the kettle still serves as a flagon for highland barley wine, it will be sent back to Jokhang Temple after one-month exhibition.

Double-body pottery

The pottery of late Neolithic Age, unearthed from the Karub Ruins, Chamdo, Tibet, reflects the top-level pottery making and moulding skill then.

Focusing on the communication of Tibetan culture, the exhibition tells the cultural exchanges between Tibet and the regions around, shows the profound and splendid history and culture of Tibet and provides visitors a unique viewing angle to get to know Tibet.

The exhibition will last until July 22.

As the exhibition charges no fee but requires a ticket, visitors should make an appointment in advance.
