Why Lijiang Mural is special ?

Lijiang Mural is the combination of Naxi, Tibetan, Bai and Han artistic designs. Most of the murals vividly describe the religious stories of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. One of its characteristics is combining several religious stories and having them in one painting. Therefore, the murals are quite unique from murals elsewhere , The mural will make you think a lot about hieroglyphics because it shows Naxi culture and the wisdom of Naxi people . There are so many great handmade Naxi embroideries in the institute and when you buy everything here, it will make you feel harmonious and comfortable.
