... there was the Hanging Monastery of Heng Mountain. Quite unbelievable and first built around 491AD. Unusually, it's a combined temple to Buddha, Confucius and Lao Tzu. The buildings are accessed by a long stone staircase, and are perch on rock ledges and beams stuck into the rock face over 50 m above the valley floor. There are three levels and to climb up one has to walk along a balcony with balustrade about hip height on me. Hairy! The whole structure is visibly ancient and ...

... wasn’t sure yet as the guy told me the tour only would take place if we’re
5 people, so he had to find still 4 other victims. He told me he would knock

It's not only famous for it's unique ...

... significance of the area. In the past, Datong was selected to have the grottoes carved out, but then influence slowly moved south over to Luoyang where the other famous grotto, Longmen Grottoes would also be carved into history. Nevertheless, the site of many Buddhas and how it has withstood time and nature is remarkable.

The area began to close down around 5:30PM and we maximized our time at the Yungang Grottoes by slowly making our way back to the main entrance. By ...

... building each, all under construction. Large parts of the city were in the process of being bulldozed - many of the buildings being torn down did not look that old. Virtually all of the new development looks to be residential apartments. There could well be 1000 new high-rises under construction in this city at the moment - figure small apartments & towers in the 25 story range and the numbers are just staggering. I just snapped a few pictures on the way in, so will try to get ...
