The frescos l was created from 1385 to 1619 and shows the different types of styles from Taoist, Tibetan, Naxi Buddhists and local Dongba shamans. The Baisha Ancient Frescos use various colors, especially black, silver, dark green, gold and red. There are several murals that were taken from Tibetan Buddhist iconography that are very bizarre and have vivid detail. Some of these murals include the damned, the wheel of life, judges of the underworld and many others. The architectural complex is made of two parts, the folk residence and the cultural sites.
The folk residence is called "Peng Shi Zhi" in local language meaning the "White Sand Streets". Houses and small stores line up on both sides of the streets. At the end of Baisha Old Street, there is a huge cluster of temples built in the Yongle Period of the Ming Dynasty, consisting of three yards: the Sutra Collection Pavilion that is the dooryard, the Liuli Temple that is the cloister and the Dabaoji Palace that is the backyard.
