811 CN - Old Town of Lijiang (1997)

Brief Description

"The Old Town of Lijiang, which is perfectly adapted to the uneven topography of this key commercial and strategic site, has retained a historic townscape of high quality and authenticity. Its architecture is noteworthy for the blending of elements from several cultures that have come together over many centuries. Lijiang also possesses an ancient water-supply system of great complexity and ingenuity that still functions effectively today."
丽江古城
"古城丽江,把经济和战略重地与崎岖的地势巧妙地融合在一起,真实、完美地保存和再现了古朴的风貌。古城的建筑历经数个世纪的洗礼,融汇了各个民族的文化特色而声名远扬。丽江还拥有古老的供水系统,这一系统纵横交错、精巧独特,至今仍在有效地发挥着作用。"
