Built in the 16-country post-Qin period, the Wushan Shuilian Caves are lined with the frescoes of Buddha statues and the Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes and the Maijishan Grottoes. It has the largest relief Buddha in the world, and is a treasure house of Buddhist art... Few people, take a sightseeing bus into the end, see the grotto on the right, very shocking, unfortunately the weather is not good, the right is the water curtain cave temple, there are some frescoes.
This is a very cost-effective scenic spot, 30 yuan ticket, 10 yuan round trip fare, conscience price. It is best to go in the afternoon, as the light is better for taking pictures. The last bus from the scenic spot back to Wushan County is at 6:30 pm. Shuilian Cave and Lashao Temple in the scenic area are worth visiting.
The entrance fee is 30 yuan, the battery ticket is 10 yuan, and the parking fee is 5 yuan. There are two attractions: Shuilian Cave and Big Buddha. Shuilian Cave requires climbing and is relatively steep. It takes about 15 minutes to climb. There are several temples in Shuilian Cave to the top of the mountain. , Arrived at the end of May, no water. It takes 3 kilometers from the gate to the scenic spot without taking a battery car, which is quite far.
The scenic spot is not bad, but I feel that both battery cars and parking fees are charged, and there is a suspicion of repeated charges.
[view] Three dozen white bones! Haha
Shuiliandong Grottoes, a large group of caves in the Weihe River basin second only to the Maijishan Grottoes, has the world’s largest open-air cliff-relief giant Buddha. On a concave cliff with a height of 60 meters and a width of 60 meters, there is a sculpture of one Buddha and two in relief clay. Bodhisattva and Big Buddha are 42.3 meters high.

According to the "Wushan County Chronicles", Kumarajiva traveled from Qiuci to Guzang (now Wuwei), and then passed through the Wushan County area before reaching Chang'an. The Buddhist monk's house was built in Shuiliandong, which made Lashao Temple famous.
