The famous Chongli Tower in Wangjianglou Park has been closed for a routine maintenance and is expected to open to the public by the end of the year.
The tower, erected in 1889, used to be a landmark structure in Chengdu because of its height and magnificent view overlooking the Jinjiang River. It is highly valued for its architectural elegance and cultural importance.
The repair of Chongli Tower is scheduled to complete by the end of October and related departments in charge of the project explained that they must be "very careful" as to the choice of skilled workers and proper materials needed for the maintenance, since the structure had showed serious peeling off on the surface because of the weather. An example as cited is that raw lacquer, instead of paint, must be applied to the surface in the repair.
