Discover an awe-inspiring display of Chinese religious rock carvings and sculptures at UNESCO-inscribed The Dazu Rock Carvings. The carvings scatter across 75 protected sites, which contain over 50,000 statues and thousands of Chinese characters. The site gained World Heritage status due to its grand scale and aesthetic quality of the sculptures. Admire these magnificent carvings, which date as far back as the seventh-century Tang dynasty and some of which are in rock shrines, others carved directly into open rock face. These beautiful carvings demonstrate the harmonious relationship between Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism in the region. Access for wheelchairs, pushchairs, and those with walking difficulties is limited.
