Baisha Ancient Town Introduction

Baisha Village is a place you cannot afford to miss as it is a living showcase of ancient Dongba culture. Dongba is the name of Naxi's indigenous religion. In Naxi dialect, Dongba means ''a wise person.'' These people are often knowledgeable about astronomy, geography, agriculture, medicine and etiquette and are also very good at singing folk songs and dancing.

Baisha Ancient Town Features

Baisha is a small village o­n the plain 10km north of Lijiang in the vicinity of several old temples. Before Kublai Khan made it part of his Yuan Empire (1271-1368), it was the capital of the Naxi Kingdom. In the Dabaoji Hall first built in 15th century, the frescos are regarded by experts the best example depicting variously Taoist plus Chinese and Tibetan Buddhist themes. Another star attraction of Baisha is renowned Doctor Ho, who looks like the stereotype of a Taoist physician, inviting tourists to drink o­ne of his cure-all herb teas.

The most famous frescos are known as Baisha Mural of the Dabaoji (Great Treasure) Palace and the Colored Glaze Temple (Liuli Dian) in the town of Baisha. Baisha Murals are quite different from other frescos. Each painting includes at least o­ne hundred portraits, but perspective is used very well, and the close, middle and establishing images are clear. The various lifelike portraits are not o­nly Buddhas but also ordinary people such as bureaucrats, criminals, tourists and executioners. Many of the scenes and subject matters are drawn from daily life-people are shown fishing, riding horses, weaving, dancing and casting iron.
