Gargantuan Guanyin Buddha Statue
Name : Gargantuan Guanyin Buddha Statue
Location : Sanwei Buddhist Holy Mountain. Located due East of the Mogao Caves complex Sanwei Mountain is one of the lesser visited places near Dunhuang
Description : At a relatively small distance driving out of Dunhuang, some 18 kilometers some of which along a treacherous road through ravines and underneath steep cliffs and rock-falls Sanwei Mountain Valley and Temple Complex offer a rich reward for visitors. Admire the GuanYin Well Buddhist Temple Pavilions and their Murals, pray at the Multiple Altars and then come face to face with Sanwei Mountain's Gargantuan Guanyin Buddha Statue.
