Photographer's Note

Buddhist statue inside a cave at Yungang, near Datong. The two travellers at the foot of the statue give you an idea of the dimensions here. Apart from that they are also nice people to travel with;-)


The Yungang Grottoes (simplified Chinese: 云冈石窟; traditional Chinese: 雲崗石窟) are ancient Buddhist temple grottoes near the city of Datong in the Chinese province of Shanxi. The grottoes were mainly constructed in the period between 460-525 AD during the Northern Wei dynasty.
