Dunhuang has carried many cultures since ancient times, including the Buddhist culture, Stone Sculpture and other works of art. As an important part of the Silk Road, Dunhuang culture is also the Mogao Caves culture. Dunhuang is the intersection of multi-cultural fusion and collision, where Chinese, Indian, Greek and Islamic cultures meet. Dunhuang is the palace of art. Those frescoes and sculptures from the 4th to 11th century A.D. bring people a strong artistic feeling.

The Art of Dunhuang
Among the must-see treasures of the world are the 1600 year old Dunhuang cave-temple museums. They include the Mogao Grottoes, the Yulin Grottoes, the Western Thousand Buddha Grottoes, the Eastern Thousand Buddha Grottoes, and the Five Temple Grottoes.

Dunhuang art has not only made great achievements in visual arts, but also witnessed the inclusive integration of different cultures. It did not inherit any single style, but absorbed various influences of metropolises such as China, Central Asia and India, and integrated them into a unique style.

The Religions in Dunhuang-Buddha
