View through the hidey hole πŸŒ·πŸ” I love the round windows in East Asian architecture. This is inside a greenhouse – you’d never guess it was -5 outside πŸ˜Šβ˜ƒοΈ

Life in #China – #Buddhist Grottos

19 May


Gongyi Grottos – one of 4 Famous grottos in China.  These are places where loyal monks have carefully carved out thousand and millions of #buddhas and religious statues into the walls of nearby caves over CENTURIES!  Unfortunately, many of the ones in Henan were destroyed during the Cultural Revolution or were defaced by the Western militaries During the wars with China.  Still an amazing, awe-inspiring sight! Well worth the trip! Thanks to the Henan Provincial Tourism Bureau for sponsoring our trip today – it was lovely!
