 The transformation of the twin cave Yulin cave in Mogao Grottoes is suspended until June 20th.


Yulin cave is located 70 kilometers south of Guzhou County, Jiuquan City, Gansu Province, and the distance from Mogao Grottoes is about 120 kilometers. In 1961, it became the first national key cultural relics protection unit released by the State Council. There are 272 colored paintings and 5650 square meters frescoes in Tang, song and Yuan Dynasties. In recent years, with the continuous growth of tourist reception, the existing infrastructure in Yulin Grottoes has been unable to meet the conditions of visit. The Dunhuang institute decided to suspend the opening of Yulin Grottoes from April 25th to June 20th and reform the infrastructure. Song Zizhen, director of the Dunhuang Research Institute of Yulin Grottoes Protection Research Institute, the Yulin grotto is located in a deep mountain canyon, distributed in the two cliffs. In the process of implementation, the area is very small and the work platform is very small. The construction and the tourists are in a passage to ensure the safety of tourists and ensure the safety of the construction. Without opening conditions, we decided to suspend the opening up to the outside world. At the same time, in the upgrading of the infrastructure, the local relevant departments also improved the prevention and control of geological hazards in Yulin grottoes, the construction of auxiliary rooms and the environment renovation, and the dismantling of the original and unconventional office buildings in the grottoes. It is understood that during the suspension of the Yulin grottoes, the Dunhuang Research Institute is also repairing the murals and statues in the sixth grottoes, Fifteenth grottoes and thirty-ninth grottoes of the Yulin grottoes, and the restoration work will be completed by the end of this year.
