Yungang Grottoes (Part i)

Yungang Grottos are divided into east, middle and west parts. The grottoes in the east (Nos. 1-4) contain mainly pagodas and Buddhist statues; and those in the middle (Nos. 5-20) are the main part of Yungang Grottoes. Most of these rectangle grottoes have a rear room, with a large Buddhist statue in the center; and the ceiling is covered with carvings of Flying Apsaras, Buddha and Bodhisattvas in relief.
