Bingling Si

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Bingling Si caves are one of the popular tourist attractions in China. The caves are located outside Lanzhou and are well preserved examples of Buddhist cave art. Situated beside the Liujiaxia Reservoir on the Yellow River, the inaccessibility of the caves has protected them somewhat from the raiding that similar caves have suffered.
The caves and grottoes are carved into the side of Xiaojishi Mountain and were built between the fifth and nineteenth centuries. Most of the caves were built during the Tang dynasty. There are almost 200 caves and alcoves featuring friezes, 694 stone statues and 82 clay figures.
Although the caves do not match their former glory, Bingling Si caves is a popular travel destination for visitors and globe trotters from all over the world who appreciate its beautiful landscapes, rich culture, delicious local cuisine, hospitality and safety.
