20 images of Heqing of the Bai people of Yunnan

Not too far from Dali, lies Heqing, a beautiful and almost preserved example of the Bai people architecture.

Bai people are one of the 56 ethnic groups officially recognized by China.

Bai people literarily mean ‘white people’ in Chinese, since they hold the white color in high esteem.

They are jealous of their heritage, their language, and customs.

Dali is the ancient capital of both the Bai kingdom Nanzhao, in Yunnan province, which flourished in the area during the 8th and 9th centuries, and the Kingdom of Dali, which reigned from 937–1253.

Heqing is a county in the Dali prefecture.
