Yungang Grottoes for Visit and explore Buddhist artwork and sculpture

These grottoes consist of more than a thousand major and minor caves together. They were carved out from the hillside about 15oo years ago. Tens of thousands of buddhist statues, ranging in size from an inch to 50 feet, spread across the site, both inside caves as well as outside. A museum at the site has a good rundown of the history of the place and display artefacts found in some of the caves.
