The Grotto of Wufoyan Temple
The Grotto of Wufoyan Temple was excavated in the Northern Wei Dynasty. It is located on the south, backing on a mountain and a river flowing in front of it. There are five big Buddhist Statues and a thousand small Buddhist Statues; hence it gets the name. The depth of the whole grotto is 9 meters and the width is 7 meters, an empty square column supporting the roof the Grotto.
Five big Buddhist Statues were put on five 5-meter-width pedestals separately, with various manners and an easy grace. There are two tall clay figures on the north and south corners respectively with dignified postures. There are 7 rows of mould small Buddhist statues on the south wall and 9 rows on the north wall, all together over 1000, so it is also called Qianfo Temple.
A Guanhe Pavilion (the river-viewing pavilion) was built by a river 100 meters southern of Wufoyan Temple. Overlooking from the Guanhe Pavilion, the river flows rapidly and there is a superb panorama. The main hall, Sanqing Palace and Caishen Pavilion are important historical sites in Wufoyan Temple. The pumping station of Jingdian first-stage construction, which is reputed as the largest in China, is located here.
