Shuiliandong is an amazing example of Buddhist grotto art. Pay special attention to the paintings that are rapidly fading from the cliff walls behind the temple. These 3d paintings show relief achieved by the addition of clay features on the paintings. Dropped from recent editions of lonely planet, this is a can’t miss stop when visiting Gansu.

This has been in our bucket list of places to visit in Gansu but we were really awed by the effort taken to paint on and add sculptures on a cliff surface! Well- preserved and a great piece of Buddhist art, we spent hours trying to capture its intricate and minute details! The grottoes also has a number of caves. We visited the Water Curtain cave and temple and were impressed with the upkeep of the attraction! Must see even though it ranked 2nd to Maji Shan, also in Tianshui!

I visited Shuiliandong with Don't Complain Travel. We took a taxi for a day from Tianshui and drove all the way to the entrance. There you'll have a little bus that can you to the Buddha Carvings. I've never seen something like that. You can continue all the way up the the "Water Curtain Cave" in which you will find a little temple with several houses. There's an old monk living there and it's a very quiet and beautiful place. We were offered some water from the holy spring, on which the last house is built on (we were able to look behind the wooden door). Definitely the highlight of my trip with Don't Complain Travel in China. Highly recommended!
