Datong

Founded in 200 BC, Datong is famous for the Yungang Grottoes filled with over 50,000 carved images and statues of Buddhas and bodhisattvas, ranging from 4 centimeters to 7 meters tall. Most of these carvings exceed 1000 years old and retain their original pigment. This was one of the most impressive historical sights we visited in China. Datong is a short trip from Beijing and worth spending a night in to see the Yungang Grottoes.
