China has a rich history reaching back to prehistoric times, and every year more and more gets discovered about this amazing civilization, and the stories beneath it.
Recently, a temple which is believed to have been constructed during the Tang Dynasty in the 7th century, was voted to be opened up after being sealed for many years to protect the inside.
The temple will be opened up on March 10 for the viewing of the beautiful interior. Due to the high value of many of the artifacts, it was kept closed to the public for preservation purposes.
The temple is made up of a staggering 2,300 caves, all of which are magically connected.
In addition to the enormity, there are believed to be about 110,000 statues and artifacts inside as well.
This is how historians were able to track the temple back to the Tang Dynasty; through the artwork.
Some of the statues are huge!
The sad fact is that many of the caves were damaged from China’s Cultural Revolution between 1966 and 1976.
However with much work and patience, many of the caves have been restored, and are almost ready for viewing!
