Buddhas in the caves.

There are about 53 caves in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Yungang Grottoes, close to the town of Datong, in China. These caves host statues of Buddha and some of them still keeps the original colours after many centuries. The tallest statue is more than 15 meters tall but the entire site including also a museum is a must for any tourist visiting Shanxi region.




I’ve visited Datong and the Yungang Grottes during my trip around the world. Here below you can find the article I wrote about my visit to this site.
