1. Tour Itinerary

Day 01 Datong (Lunch)
Arrive Datong in the morning, our guide will meet you at the railway station. Tour to the Yungang Grottoes, the Huayan Monastery, the Nine Dragon Screen and Shanhua Monastery.

Yungang Grottoes: They were carved over l,500 years ago when, as the capital of the Northern Wei Dynasty (386-534), Datong, then known as Pingcheng, was the centre of feudal autocracy in northern China. There are 53 caves, with 51,000 carved statues and bas-reliefs. Thousands of labourers and sculptors worked for 34 years to complete the carvings which provide abundant material for studying the dress, architecture, music, dances, and art of the time.
Huayan Monastery: Originally a grand temple, the Huayan Monastery was almost ruined in wars but its Hall of the Bhagavan's Teachings still remains today. Thirty-one statues made in the Liao Dynasty (916-1125), treasured examples of ancient clay figure making, are kept intact in the hall.
Nine Dragon Screen: The Nine-Dragon Screen made from coloured glazed tiles and bricks dates back over 500 years - some 300 years older and much larger than the Nine-Dragon Screen in Beihai Park, Beijing, which is also considered a national treasure. It is thought that the making of dragon screens originated in Datong where the industry is still in operation today.
Shanhua Monastery: The monastery was first built in A.D. 713-741 during the Tang Dynasty, the entire monastery is a well-proportioned, well-preserved complex. It contains more than thirty Buddhist statues sculptured during the Liao and Kin dynasties, the most noteworthy being covered in gold leaf.
