Picture

Original version

The picture depicts a scenario in which an ancient royal palace is being recklessly torn down. In front of the gate are two stone lions crying and hugging farewell, realizing their inevitable destiny of being destroyed. Besides, in the dust we can vaguely read a sign stating that the site was once deemed a municipal culture relic.

The picture sharply addresses the serious conflict between urban development and the preservation of historical sites. The issue is especially controversial in China, where there exists rich history, diversified tradition and cultural deposits. Take Beijing as an example, the municipal government is still trapped in the dilemma between constructing more modern buildings and maintaining the prestigious courtyard houses. Moreover, a brief survey on the internet reveals numerous tragedies about the irreversible damage to historical sites

In my opinion, a balanced economic development is not necessarily accompanied by the sacrifice of history. On the contrary, historical sites are the memory of our country’s glorious past, which can enable citizens’ identity with the nation. Therefore, we must work out a win-win strategy to promote economic development while retaining our cultural heritage. Meanwhile, a proper management of these sites can also bring a considerable amount of tourism income.
