Museum of Beijing Stone Inscription Art 1/1 by Tripoto
Riya Poojary
It is located in the grounds of Five-Pagoda Temple. The museum is arranged on all four sides of the pagoda. It is divided into six sections: comprehensive stone inscription, tablets of merits and virtues, epitaph, calligraphy, temples and guildhalls, and stone carvings. From applauding famous officials for their good deeds on the tablets to 300 inscriptions on tombstones all from different dynasties, made this an highlight of my imperial trip. The guildhalls has collection of inscriptions from provincial and commercial associations while the stone carving section showcase the Yuan Dynasty dragon and phoenix slab stones, and other statues from the Ming and Qing dynasties. This place successfully preserves the history of the many great dynasties.
