The Yungang Grottoes (云冈石窟) are ancient Buddhist temple grottoes near the city of Datong in the Chinese province of Shanxi. The grottoes were mainly constructed in the period between 460-525 AD during the Northern Wei dynasty.

This is one of the main statues at the site. Originally it was inside a cave, but the front wall collapsed ages ago. Also note the intricate decorations on the wall beyond.
