Buddha Vairocana Cave

Cave in Dazu Buddhist Caves

The truly adventurous might like to catch a bus to the tiny town of Shíyáng (石羊), which has a little-seen collection of Song dynasty Buddhist rock carvings.

Buses to Shíyáng, just over the border in Sìchuān province, leave from Dàzú’s old bus station. When you get there, keep asking for Pílú Dòng (毗卢洞); it’s walking distance. From Shíyáng, you can continue by bus to Chéngdū.
