Xi'an Travel Guide

Forest of Steles

Forest of Steles

Though there are many collections of steles (stone tablets) in China, only the one in Xi'an is large enough to be called a forest. There are more than 3,000 ancient steles in this library, dating back to the Tang Dynasty (618-907). The museum itself is nearly as old, having been established in 1087. The steles are divided into seven exhibition halls, and display classic examples of traditional Chinese calligraphy, painting and historical records. Ink rubbings of some of the most famous tablets are for sale in the gift shop.
