Cliff with Thousand Stone-carved Buddha in Tang and Song Dynasty

Cliff with Thousand Stone-carved Buddha in Tang and Song Dynasty, a Key Cultural Relic under State-level protection, is located in the east of Jialing River, four kilometers from the city. It was first carved in South and North Dynasty, and further carved or engraved in all the dynasties, with large quantity of sculptures of Sui and Tang Dynasties. Hence, it is entitled “the Museum of Engraving Art of all Ages”. As one of the grand and well-preserved grottoes, it stretches as far as over two hundred meters from south to north, and has more than four hundred caves, seven thousand sculptures, nearly the same as Mogao Grottoes. There were formerly twenty thousand Buddha sculptures. Unfortunately, over half of them were destroyed in the explosions of construction of Chuanshan Highroad in 1935. Nevertheless, these sculptures left are also considerably delicate.
