Dazu Rock Carvings
The steep hillsides of the Dazu area contain an exceptional series of rock carvings dating from the 9th to the 13th century. They are remarkable for their aesthetic quality, their rich diversity of subject matter, both secular and religious, and the light that they shed on everyday life in China during this period. They provide outstanding evidence of the harmonious synthesis of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism.
This site is amazing....The size and number of carvings and the detail that was implemented is truely amazing...One of the most beautiful artistic sites I've seen...The people in China love Americans and the cost of motels and food very cheap...But it is the people that you will like the most, they have nothing and give you everything...most of the signs are in Chinese and English, English is the 2nd language....They are courious and gentle people...A wonderful experience...They drive badly though so take a taxi !!
