The Cliff Sculpture was engraved on a natural cliff in the Eastern Han Dynasty, about 2000 years ago. It is 17 meters long, 8 meters high, and consists of 110 stone sculptures. There are sculptures of Buddhism, Taoism, Bodhisatva, Hercules, Buddhist pilgrims, and so on. Most of the sculptures reflect the stories of Sakymuani jataka and Buddhism. It is called the first Buddhist Cliff Sculpture by historians for it is 300 years earlier than Dunhuang Grottoes, and it was appointed to be the national protected place in 1988.
