    ... the early 1900s and then again in 2006. It was interesting to see how much some parts had changed while some others today you can only see the remnants of.

Many of the carvings are in small niches. The large Buddha can been seem from a distance along the ...

    ... a photograph but this is something you just have to experience.

    Another museum offers some shade and a great display of 3rd to 7th century cartoons and doodles from bricks found in the nearby Wei tombs.

It would be a big advantage to be able to read Chinese though, because some of ...
