    ... definitely not small. Overall, Buddha is represented over 51,000 times, the largest being a 17 meter tall seated Buddha with a gilded
    face and blue glazed tile eyes. He is only one of many big ones. Everywhere are walls of "1,000 Buddha's", small ones about 4" or 5" tall, carved in rows, each Buddha in his own niche.

As there seems to be literally no other tourists in China right now we had to pay for our own taxi for the day to take us, as the sights are quite far away from Datong and in the end we paid 25 (250).
