Dunhuang By RWFG

Dunhuang flourished as a Buddhist monastery and way station on the Southern Silk Road for 900 years starting around 366 AD. It is an assembly of nearly 1000 man-made caves all painted in glorious colors: the largest open-air art gallery in the world.  Besides being magnificent in themselves, the frescoes give a full account of the development of Central Asian Buddhist painting and the people and history of the Silk Road.  For a download of an elaborate overlay of the Silk Roads go to the post.    The Silk Roads Before 1200 AD - 0 Messages
