Longmen Grottoes

Jemima Durnford
After Xi'an we took a 5 hour train journey to Louyang so see the Longmen Grottoes. It is a hillside dotted with 2,100 grottoes containing tens of thousands of statues of Buddha and more than 40 Buddhist pagodas. It is over 2,000 years old and is the 'Cradle of Buddhism'.

Because walking beside the river renewed my spirit, and tracing the lines of the face of an antique, intricate, stone-carved Buddha sparked my passion for art and all that man has the power to create.
