The Taizhou municipal bureau of cultural relics was inaugurated in the city in East China's Zhejiang province on Aug 17, local media reported.
The government body's establishment will facilitate the protection and utilization of cultural relics and promote the in-depth integration of the local culture and tourism sectors.
Currently, Taizhou is home to 17 cultural relics sites under State-level protection and 69 sites under provincial-level protection.
The city also boasts over 3,500 immovable cultural relics and more than 30,000 movable cultural relics, according to national surveys.
In recent years, great efforts have been made to strengthen the protection of such heritage sites, including the City Wall of the Ancient City of Taizhou, stone houses in Shitang town, as well as Yongfeng Bridge.
The City Wall of the Ancient City of Taizhou was listed as a relic under State protection in 2001 and on the preparatory list of China World Cultural Heritage in 2012.
On the Shitang Peninsula in Wenling, a county-level city in Taizhou, old stone houses adorned with graffiti and murals have emerged as a scenic attraction.
