Yungang Grottoes

Yungang Grottoes were chiseled during the Northern Wei Dynasty (AD368-534). It was the first large-scale royal grotto project constructed by the state since Buddhism was introduced to China during the Han Dynasty (202 BC- AD 220). It is composed of 254 caves, including 45 major ones, which stretch one kilometer from west to east. Yungang Grottoes were added to the list in December, 2001.
