Having no previous experience with Chinese calligraphy or the history of the stone tablets and steles, I felt like I was at a bit of a disadvantage here. Our tour guide was moderately helpful in explaining the significance of the tablets, but an English guidebook would have made the experience a little more meaningful. After a while, the Chinese characters start to blend together in rivers of inscriptions, and while one can appreciate the effort that went into the creation, I never got a sense of WHY these tablets were created and their purpose. The accompanying sculpture museum was interesting.
