Dukezong ancient city, located in shangri-la county, deqing prefecture, yunnan province, is an ancient city with a history of more than 1300 years. Tufan set up a castle on the top of the big turtle mountain here, called “dukezong”. A Tibetan pronunciation contains two meanings, one is “castle built on stone” and the other is “moonlight city”.
In the construction of the ancient city, most of the building materials are local materials. The exterior walls of ancient dwellings were painted white after craftsmen discovered that a kind of local white clay could be used to paint the exterior walls of houses. This style is still used today.
Many of the buildings burned to ashes in 2014 have been rebuilt with no trace of the fire
