Zhangye Dafo Si

Tempel des Großen Buddha in Zhangye, erbaut im Jahre 1098. In ihm befindet sich der größte liegende Buddha Chinas (33 m lang). An diesem Morgen war es grimmige -8° C kalt, dafür hat man zu dieser Jahreszeit solche Sehenswürdigkeiten fast für sich alleine. Im Sommer tummeln sich hier 5 mal so viele Touristen wie im Kölner Dom ;-)
