The MaiJiShan Grottoes 麦积山石窟, TianShui, GanSu province

The MaiJiShan Grottoes are filled with thousands of Buddhist sculptures.


These were carved from the Wei dynasty to the Song dynasty by Buddhist monks who first came here via the North Silk Road.


The grottoes are close to TianShui, which is the second largest city in GanSu province in central China, with a population of approximately 3.5 milion. The city lies along the route of the ancient Northern Silk Road by the Wei River, through which much of the trade flowed between China and the West.


The Qin state, the founding dynasty of China, arose in this part of China.

The Great Wall 长城 of the Qin Dynasty

ShanHaiGuan, east of Beijing at the coast, is at the eastern end of the Great Wall.

This is located near QinHuangDao and is closely associated with China's first emperor. Qin Dynasty: 221 - 206 BC.


Qin Shi Huang joined together walls at China's northern frontier into the first Great Wall. He also ended feudalism and unified much of China. JaiYuGuan, the western-most gate of the Qin Great Wall, where trade along the old Silk Road also took place, lies thousands of kilometers from here.
