Beijing Stone Carvings Art Museum

The Museum of Beijing Stone Inscription Art is located in the grounds of Five-Pagoda Temple, 200 meters north of Beijing Zoo. The Stone Inscription Museum, arranged on all four sides of the pagoda, is divided into six sections, namely: comprehensive stone inscription, tablets of merits and virtues, of epitaph, of calligraphy, of temples and guildhalls, and stone carvings.

In the comprehensive stone inscription area, there are two huge carved tables that were made for emperors Qianlong and Shunzhi of the Qing Dynasty. The 12 tablets of merits and virtues applaud famous officials and nobility of the Ming and Qing dynasties for their good deeds and upright behavior.

In the epitaph section, there are 300 inscriptions on tombstones from the Tang to Qing dynasties that had been carved for imperial family members and high officials.

 

Nearby is the National Library of China, Lotus Lake, Beijing Aquarium, and Beijing Zoo.
