Exhibition on ancient Tibetan kingdom opens in Dunhuang, NW China's Gansu

An exhibition on the Tibetan Tubo Kingdom (about 618-842) opened in the city of Dunhuang, northwest China's Gansu Province Tuesday.

Over 120 cultural relics from nearly 30 museums and cultural institutions from China and abroad are on display, including silk products, gold, silverware and Buddha statues.

The exhibition presents how the Tubo people absorbed neighboring cultures between the 7th and 9th century, and is important for research on the ancient Silk Road, the Tubo Kingdom and Central Asia, according to the Dunhuang Academy.

The exhibition will last until October 22.
