Pictures of Tianshui
Starting from Xi’an on the Silk Road, Tianshui is the first city encountered in Gansu Province. This city has kept its atmosphere and its authentic character, there are still beautiful traditional wooden houses.
The most prominent site in the region is the Maijishan Caves, one of the most important Buddhist cave complexes in all of China. The 194 caves of this ensemble, pierced in a circular hill, contain numerous statues of clay and stone as well as murals.
