Picture of the Day:Binglingsi Grottoes

It too us over three hours by tour bus, then a half hour ride in a tiny speed boat on the Yellow River and a long walk to get here.

There are supposedly 10,000 Buddha statues here but we didn't see them all -- many are closed off from the public.

But the styles of the statues are different from the various periods in China's history. There's even a Buddha with mini murals of palm trees flanking him on each side.

This is like a mini prelude to the Mogao Grottoes we will see in a few days.
