Abstract (in English)

The current progress of civilization and the extension of urban size not only challenge the protection of cultural relics, also have adverse effects for ecological environment. Many cities have become the machines of consuming resource, making pollution, and extend unlimitedly. The relics of Jinyang ancient city are situated in the suburb area of Taiyuan City, being “Pompeii” in China. In order to better protect Jinyang ancient city, we once proposed the preliminary protection idea. We have raised new ideas after carrying out in 2003 the research on the project “Protection and Development of Tourism for Ancient Jinyang City in Taiyuan”, in which we collaborated with the department of “21st century urban planning, management and development” of Bureau for Development of the United Nations. These new ideas include strengthening legislation protection, control city scale, re-positioning of the city, etc.
