  • The cave itself is neat but the sea of Buddhas is really impressive. There are over 9000 Buddha statues here from small to large, old to new, multiple different material and poses. It was easy to mane...  more »
  • Crazy actually, that anyone ever begun in this cave a Buddha image. Compare it with the padlocks to bridges, which today is a hype. From the faith, this cave is a famous pilgrimage site, and this goes back for centuries. There are now more than 8100 pictures, from small to large and from stone to marble. The cave is through a covered staircase (130 steps), or you can with a lift up. North of the cave is still in a separate room, a seated Buddha and anything else is a reclining Buddha.
