Dunhuang, one of the famous historical and cultural cities in China, is located in the west China. It is a bright pearl shining in the Silk Road in ancient times. The culture of Dunhuang developed prosperous during the Tang Dynasty about 1600 years ago, leaving behind many historic relics for us to visit. The cultural architectures and arts produced over the past long years are not seen in any other part of the world, for which, Dunhuang is entered the historic relic of UNESCO.
Sensational Buddhist Classics
In 1990, in a grotto of Dunhuang, a monk unintentionally entered a cave where the Buddhist classic books unknown to modern people were piled up. His discovery attracted the explores from both home and abroad. So Dunhuang becomes known worldwide overnight.
Paintings in the Desert
Mogao Grotto at Dunhuang is a grand museum of space-time arts. It embraces the history of thousands of years, the process of communication and combination between oriental and western cultures, and the ancient history and contribution of China.
The Patter Resounding in Dunhuang
One may wonder how many people ever used their own language to patter inside the grottos in those years? Looking at those majestic and lofty figures of Buddha, could one ever tell how Buddhism in Dunhuang is influenced by alien arts?
Dreams of Dunhuang
While we fell proud of Dunhuang’s treasure of culture and arts, we feel much guilty for the loss of its cultural relics and ruins inflicted upon by humankinds. A few far-sighted scholars have made their efforts possible to protect the arts of Dunhuang. Thousands of followers spend their whole life dreaming about the recovery of the past cultural prosperity of Dunhuang.
