After our visit to the Yungang Grottoes, we want to take a look at the remains of the great Wall near Datong. It was really worth the drive! Beautiful scenery all around!

Best part is the gate in front of the Huayan Temple. You can see the city, but it's not an amazing view. Better look for the constructions inside the wall.

Inside the big modern bustling city of Datong there is an old City area and a couple of beautiful old temples. Surrounding this area is a monumental, newly built, wall, which will soon be completed to surround the old City area. The wall, temples and views make for an interesting walk. The wall is several kilometres long but the south gate and nearby Huayan monastery are definitely worth the journey, and there are still a few remnants of the old rammed earth walls to be seen.

The Old Datong township has a lovely wall around it - all re-constructed to be like new, but you'd swear it's 2000 years old. It's therefore possible to walk around the Old Town - which itself is being "restored". Beside the West Gate ??( please, please check ) there is a fantastic large modern gallery space built within the wall. I was lucky enough to be there for the Datong Biennial and saw some of the best sculpture I've seen anywhere in the world. They have other exhibitions.

This section of the Great Wall is not rebuilt. Just rubble and stones. Gives a look back in history that is difficult to find any more in China.
