What people are saying:

Shaanxi Zichang Zhongshan Grottoes, a national security unit, also known as Wanfoyan, Puji Temple, Dapuji Temple, Shigong Temple. It was built during the Taihe period of the Jin Dynasty (AD 366-370), and it was constructed after more than a thousand years of Tang, Song, Jin, Yuan, Ming and Qing. According to historical records, there are a total of 18 caves. Only five caves have been excavated. It is a national cultural relic. The third cave is the best preserved, and there are more than 10,000 large and small Buddha statues in the cave. Therefore, it is called Wanfoyan. It was built in the fourth year of Song Pingzhi (1067). The cave is magnificent, colorful, and thousands of sculptures. It is vivid and lifelike. The embossed Buddha statues are patchy and exquisite. Chinese and foreign scholars believe that its historical value and artistic value are not under the Yungang Grottoes, Longmen Grottoes, and Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes. Expert conclusions are: "China's earliest grottoes", "rare grottoes in the world", and "the second Dunhuang."
