Experts gather to swap notes, explore solutions to better protect cave temples and stone carvings worldwide, Yang Feiyue reports in Chongqing.

Around 160 domestic and international experts came together in Chongqing between Aug 19 and 21 to explore opportunities for cooperation and methods to protect rock carvings in cave temples around the world.
