On May 12th, the eighth day of the Chinese lunar calendar, the world cultural heritage Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes ushered in the annual Bathing Buddha Festival. Tens of thousands of people flocked to the nine-storey square of Mogao Grottoes to burn incense and worship Buddha, and pray for a better life. This is the most lively day in Dunhuang. The “extraordinary” of the Mogao Grottoes allow visitors to burn incense and worship Buddha outside the fence of the cave.2nYSilk Road Adventure & Private Tours - Silk Road China Tours

On Buddha’s birthday, based on the traditional customs of the local residents of Dunhuang, Mogao Grottoes offered preferential treatment to Dunhuang citizens. Local residents can purchase 5 yuan entrance tickets with valid ID cards and visit the Cave 96th – the Great Buddha Hall of Mogao Grottoes, Cave 148 and Cave 138. At the same time, foreign tourists can also feel the devout and lively atmosphere on the day.2nYSilk Road Adventure & Private Tours - Silk Road China Tours
