Datong Tour

Datong locationDatong, the second largest city in Shanxi Province, situated in the far north, near the border with Inner Mongolia. Datong is an ancient city with a history of more than 2,400 years. The city is endowed with rich cultural relics, such as famous city, noted monasteries, well known pagodas, grottoes and illustrious frescoes as well. The State Council listed Datong as one of the 24 historical and cultural cities in the first batch in 1982.

Amid the blasted landscape of modern industrial China-coalmines, power stations and a huge locomotive factory - are some marvellous ancient sites, remnants of the city's glory days as the capital city of two non-Han Chinese dynasties. The Turkic Toba people took advantage of the internal strife afflicting central and southern China to establish their own dynasty, the Northern Wei (386-534), taking Datong as their capital in 398 AD, by which time they had conquered the whole of the north. Though the period was one of strife and warfare, and the Wei never fully consolidated their hold on power,the Northern Wei, who became fervent Buddhists, made some notable cultural achievements, the finest of which was a magnificent series of cave temples at Yungang, just west of the city, still one of the most impressive sights in northern China. Over the course of almost a century, more than fifty caves were completed, containing over fifty thousand statues, before the capital was moved south to Luoyang, where contruction began on the similar Longmen Caves.
