Dazu Rock Carvings, China.

This world heritage really made an impression on me. The Dazu Rock Carvings are protected sites with over 50,000 statues (wow) but with even more (100,000) Chinese characters carved inscriptions and epigraphs.

What is even more amazing is where it was done. The steep hillsides of Dazu county aren't what you call an easy working place.

Mount Boading and Mount Beishan were my favourites in the rock grotto. The carvings have been made with such precision and craftsmanship, I was completely astonished by the site. Everywhere you look, you can find something of interest.

The carvings somehow display ordinary life in China centuries ago.

China really has its own culture and if you want to indulge yourself I would really go to the Dazu Rock Carvings
