    Your Datong exploration will begin with a visit to Hanging Temple today. The Hanging Temple, as the name suggests, is a temple hanging somewhere not built on the ground. Constructed according to the natural layout of the cliff on the basis of mechanics, this temple is actually supported by crossbeams which are fitted into the cliff. With a complex of three religious halls and 40 rooms, this temple is linked by mid-walkways from the left to the right. There are clay sculptures, stone carvings, copper and iron statues characterized by Taoism, Buddhism and Confucius. The odd structure, crafty design, bold construction, artistic value, and the combination of Taoism, Buddhism and Confucius have made the Hanging Temple an architectural wonder and hot attraction.

    Next we will proceed to visit Wooden Pagoda. The Wooden Pagoda is located in Yingxiang County, about 70 kilometers from Datong City. The Wooden Pagoda was built in the year of 1056 during Liao Dynasty and is the oldest and highest wooden pagoda in the world. It is an octagonal-shape pagoda in the height of 70 meters and 6 stories. The Wooden Pagoda built to be strong and elegant with artful design and subtle structure is a fine example of traditional Chinese wooden architecture. Also the collection of precious relics like color paintings and Buddhist scripts preserved in Wooden Pagoda make it a great place to get to know the history and culture of Liao Dynasty.

    Afterwards, our guide will take you back to the hotel for a good rest.

There are 45 caves open for visit with thousands of Buddha statues seated. These delicately carved Buddha statues are of different sizes, different expressions and postures.

Datong Nine Dragon Wall is built in 1392 during the reign of Hongwu of the Ming Dynasty and is the largest and the oldest Nine Dragon Wall in China.
