From:China Daily  Writer:  Date:2016-12-02
Electronic monitors have been installed at Chongling Mausoleum of the Tang Dynasty (618-907) in Xianyang city, Shaanxi province, and just began a trial run. Each of the electronic cameras faces a stone relic. This is one of the high-tech programs intended to protect relics in the field above provincial level in Shaanxi province.
