UNESCO - Yungang Grottoes, China

The Yungang Grottoes are ancient Chinese Buddhist temple grottoes near the city of Datong in the province of Shanxi. They are an outstanding example of the Chinese stone carvings from the 5th and 6th centuries. All together the site is composed of 252 grottoes with more than 51,000 Buddha statues and statuettes.
I am left with nothing but sighs of bewilderment when I look at Chinese Unesco sites...Thank you Jinzhou :))
