Dazu Rock Carvings
Chongqing, Sichuan and Yangtze Cruises, China
We will spend some time at Dazu Rock Carvings with its UNESCO-listed rock carvings across the Dazu Country, including Mount Baoding and Mount Beishan which houses some of the best carvings.
The carvings in Dazu date to the 7th century AD with influences from Buddhist, Taoist and Confucian beliefs. There are as many as 75 sites with 50,000 statues and over 100,000 Chinese inscriptions and epigraphs.
