Continuing our exploration of Luoyang we visited the Wen Fang Pagoda, a 30 year old rebuilt monument based on the landmarks destroyed by Japanese bombardments. It is part of an overall initiative to revive the city’s economic diversity. We carried on to the White Horse Temple located on the outskirts of the city proper. It is considered to be the first Buddhist temple in China, established in 68 AD, under the patronage of Emporer Ming. It is a modestly scaled site covering about 13 hectares, with details reconstructed during the Ming and Qing dynasties, as well as after the Cultural Revolution. Our last visit was to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Longmen Grottoes, located along the Yi River, a tributary to the Yellow River. The individual limestone carvings number about 100,000 within around 2,345 overall caves.
