The city of Datong was originally the capital of Northern Wei (386~534) and the ‘support capital’ of Liao (916~1125) and Jin (1115~1234). Northern Wei is a stage during which Buddhism developed quite rapidly in China. In the later Liao and Jin, the belief in Buddhism also increased to a high level. Therefore, as the country’s political and economic center, many temples, pagodas and other buildings related to Buddhism were set up during these periods in Datong. Situated on the trans-mongolian route between Ulan-Bator and Beijing, Datong is a great city to stopover on your trans-siberian railway travel. Our tours in Datong gives you the chance to visit the famous hanging temples on the Mt. Hengshan or discover the carved Buddha and painting of the Yungang Grottoes. If you want to extend your journey up to Lhasa, Shanghai or even Hong-kong, we are happy to propose our special China tours page, visit our China Visa page for visa requirement to China.
