Source: Updated: 2023-03-16

Located at the southern foot of Wuzhou Mountain in Datong, Shanxi Province, the Yungang Grottoes are among the largest Buddhist grotto temples in China. The Yungang Grottoes were carved more than 1,500 years ago and house over 59,000 Buddhist statues of distinct designs. They form a cultural treasure house of ancient Buddhist and stone carving art, fusing elements of Chinese and foreign culture, ethnic minority culture, and Central Plains culture.
