Mogao Caves
#1 of 18 Sights & Landmarks in Dunhuang
In Europe we have churches building on Pagan temple sites, here in Mogao we have temples after temples building on a super powerful vortex.
And the whole time you are led throughout the site without much freedom to roam around but its to preserve these artifacts that have already survived centuries so its understandable.
