  • Fascinating. I'm not sure what the Buddha would think of all the statues of worship -- he was a wonderful teacher, but Buddhism is not a religion. Well worth a visit anyway
  • The cave temples were quite interesting with hundreds and hundreds of Buddha statues which can actually be a bit overwhelming. The pagoda itself is very beautiful and many of the Buddha statues surrounding the central pagodas had lovely flowers set in their alcoves which made for some nice photography.
