The ‘Hanging Monastry’ at DaTong, ShaanXi province

Suspended some 50m above a river, the monastry was built in the year 490 and most recently renovated in 1900.


Close by are the YunGang Grottoes - caves containing over 50,000 Buddhist statues from 3cm to 20m in height - and a number of Buddhist temples on Heng Mountain (via cable car). There is also the YingXian Pagoda, built in 1056.
