Chongqing Dazu Rock Carvings Tour

The Dazu Rock Carvings(Dazu Grottoes:大足石刻) are a series of Chinese religious sculptures and carvings, dating back as far as the 7th century AD, depicting and influenced by Buddhist, Confucian and Taoist beliefs. Some are in rock-cut cave shrines, in the usual Chinese Buddhist style, but many others are rock reliefs carved into the open rock faces.
