China’s ancient port of Quanzhou is anxiously waiting to get World Heritage status. The proposal, “Quanzhou: Emporium of the World in Song–Yuan China,” to get the coveted tag will be evaluated by the World Heritage Committee during its 44th session held in southeast China’s Fuzhou and online.

Located on the southeast coast of China, Quanzhou is now home to more than eight million inhabitants and a significant number of cultural relics and religious sites, such as Qingjing Mosque, one of the oldest mosques in the country, and the Twin Stone Pagodas at Kaiyuan Temple, which are the tallest pair among China’s stone pagodas.
