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.

  • From Chongqing dazu up to one and half hours by bus. From there further man Shan main in 205 bus in about 20 minutes. Awesome is the word. It is better if taxi to another include kitayama, caught in there. All about basic carpool city taxi is returned to the Centre by bus because I was in, where you can see and kitayama was. So was climbing up to kitayama Petit. Kitayama and Shan also differ in atmosphere, was impressed.

  • Lord cave as a part of that and into the fire, located in the middle. The funny thing is that you don't have to pay an entry fee, can be seen in the upper part of the trail that point. But do not deliberately picked up the comment goes into the cave and keep the price of admission is a little excellent luck, perhaps?

  • We have came here from Chonqging. First bus for 45CNY to Dazu and then bus 205 to Rock Carvings. Entrance fee is pretty high 135 CNY/pp. This place sometimes might be crowded with chinese groups. But rock carvings are amazing. Dont miss to visit museum and temple complex in the surrounding area.
  • Stunning rock carvings; truly a world heritage.
  • Very impressive by many Buddism sculptures
  • Awesome
  • By taxi from the Chongqing City about 300 yuan, 1.5 to arrive at hanging around two hours. Cheaper than hiring a car one day. Picking up on the way back without leprosy, and you are good. It's pretty widely, electric trolley bus in one way 20 Yuan. There are impressive reclining Buddha and a statue of senjyukannonbosatsu. To exit at the back of the restaurants. No in store Street entrance in front of the Northern Song dynasty and Southern Song dynasty city deserted. Is terminated if there 1.5 hours in the garden.
