Last view from the temple

Oct 2009
This is the last shot about this temple / monastery built on a cliff. I'll start a new set of pictures next week. It'll be about the Yungang grottoes, listed as a world heritage. There are thousand of buddhas carved in the grottoes there, from very small ones to huge ones. Picture were not allowed for the 2 most amazing ones, but there are many things to show anyway.
Voici la dernière vue de ce temple / monastère construit sur une falaise. Je débuterais une nouvelle série de photos la semaine prochaine. Elle sera consacrée aux grottes Yungang, sur la liste du patrimoine mondial de l'humanité. Il y a des centaines de bouddhas sculptés dans les grottes, de très petit jusqu'à d'énormes statues. Les photos n'était pas autorisées pour les deux plus impressionants, mais il y a tout de même énormément de choses à montrer.
