Tianlongshan Grottoes is a series of 25 caves carved into the mountainside and well known for the fine Buddhist statues sculpted within. These caves are 1500 years old and full of carved Buddha. It is a fantastic site which should be listed in the same area as Jin Temple (which really should be renamed Jinci Temple)and the Twin Pagoda Temple; these are the main sights around Taiyuan City, the capital of Shanxi Province. I am not an official rep of Tianlong Shan; they are all Buddhist monks. But I have ticked the box nonetheless so that you might consider including it. If so, I shall provide a thorough description of the place for you.

Severely damaged, not much to see and the road uphill is dangerous. Lots of other more interesting place to go than here in Shanxi.
