Song dynasty-immitating sand city

Song dynasty-immitating sand city
The Ancient City of Dunhuang (Dunhuang Gucheng) is not what you may think. It is a huge movie set made to resemble the Song Dynasty city of Dunhuang. The set was created to film the movie "Dunhuang" in 1987 through a cooperation between Chinese and Japanese filmmakers.

Located right smack in the middle of the Gobi Desert about 25km southwest of Dunhuang, the surrounding landscape gives the city an impressive feel. Scattered throughout the streets of the small city are various temples, pawnshops, warehouses, silk shops, bars, restaurants and residences all of which are used as props and backgrounds.

Dunhuang Gucheng has become the largest film and television filming set in Western China. Besides the film "Dunhuang", more than 20 films and television programs have been filmed here and the set has become a major sight on the Dunhuang tour circuit.
