An important notice for the battery cars. Please take special notice of #3: please do not frolic on the car.From Wikipedia: Longmen Grottoes are one of the three most famous ancient sculptural sites in China. There are over 2100 niches, more than 100,000 statues, some 40 pagodas and 3600 tablets. 30% of the caves date from the Northern Wei Dynasty, 60% from the Tang Dynasty, and caves from other periods less than 10%. It is the most impressive collection of Chinese art from these dynasties, and, dating from 316 to 907 CE, represents the zenith of stone carving in China
From Jill: The grottoes are beautiful and extend for a few kilometers on either side of the Yi river. We only walked on one side because it was too far for Dean (and probably me, too). I have included some of my fave pictures, some of which still show the paint that was originally on the inside of the caves. Pretty impressive, considering how old these caves are.
