Luoyang is an ancient city with history over thousands of years. It was selected as the capital of 13 dynasties starting from the Xia Dynasty in the 21st century BC. Take the high-speed train from Xi'An to Luoyang to enjoy this thousand-year old attraction.

Long Men Grottoes is one of the finest examples of Chinese Buddhist art. Housing tens of thousands of statues of Buddha and his disciples, it is located 12 kilometers south of present Luoyang. There are as many as 100,000 statues within the 1,400 caves, ranging from 1 inch to 57 feet in height. The area also contains nearly 2,500 stelae and inscriptions, as well as over sixty Buddhist pagodas. In year 2000, the site was inscribed upon the UNESCO World Heritage List as "an outstanding manifestation of human artistic creativity" for its perfection of an art form, and for its encapsulation of the cultural sophistication.

The temple is considered by most believers as the cradle of Chinese Buddhism. It has numerous halls divided by several courtyards and manicured gardens, covering an area extending to about 13 hectares. Significant statues include Sakyamuni Buddha, Maitreya-the laughing Buddha, the Jade Buddha, and figures of saints such as Guru Avalokitesvara, Amitabha and Arhats.
