Additional Information

Introduction

Gongyi Grottoes Temple is located in the northeast of Gongyi City. The Gongyi Grottoes were a cave built by the royal family of Northern Wei Dynasty. Here Emperor Xiaowen established a monastery. When the Xuanwu Emperor began to chisel the stone into a grotto, he engraved the Buddha's image. Later in the Wei, Tang and Song dynasties, some small reliefs were carved here. The Gongyi Cave Temple was built after the Longmen Grottoes in Luoyang. It combines the external influences of Buddhist art with the Han art of the Central Plains.
