中国世界遗产 敦煌莫高窟 mò gāo kū= Dunhuang Mogao caves



The Mogao Caves, or Mogao Grottoes 莫高窟 mò gāo kū also known as the Caves of the Thousand Buddhas and Dunhuang Caves form a system of 492 temples 25 km (15.5 miles) southeast of the center of Dunhuang, an oasis strategically located at a religious and cultural crossroads on the Silk Road, in Gansu province, China. The caves contain some of the finest examples of Buddhist art spanning a period of 1,000 years.



The first caves were dug out 366 AD as places of Buddhist meditation and worship. The Mogao Caves are the best known of the Chinese Buddhist grottoes and, along with Longmen Grottoes and Yungang Grottoes, are one of the three famous ancient sculptural sites of China. The caves also have famous wall paintings.
