The Miran Ruins, near the Tarim Basin, are home to a lost civilization. An ancient temple was once buried for a 1,000 years under the sands of Cele County. Although these lost civilizations of Xinjiang are mysterious and fascinating, they also serve as a warning that any civilization can disappear if the sand is not controlled. Actually, sand control is not about conquering nature, which is something that both the staff of the Cele Sand Control Station and the local people are well aware of. Living in harmony with the sand for many years, they have developed their own wisdom and know how to thrive.
