Center. A total of 118 image stones are in the collection of the museum.

900m² and there is a collection of more than 500 image stones. In the middle of 1970s, the number rose sharply to over 1,000. In 1976, another addition was made to the original museum and was completed in 1979. The present exhibition hall has an area of over
1,700m², featuring 187 finely-selected image stones. Currently the collection has amounted to 1,500.

Temple of
Marquis Wu (Wuhou Ci). With its convenient transportation and favorable location, the gallery covers an area of over 5 hectares and the central architecture is the grand

Building as large as 400 hectares.

11m high, Han-styled towers and a marble wall is right in the middle of the gate, on which it reads Han Hua Guan--- Art Gallery of Han Dynasty Stone Carvings. Walking by the green lawns on both sides and into the square, the grand and elegant

On the west wall there is a large Han-styled sculpture work which mirrors the rich and profound culture of Nanyang.
