Yulin Grottoes are also called Ten-Thousand Buddhas Cave, one of the treasure houses of Buddhist grottoes art in China. The caves were built on bank cliffs at two sides of the Yulin River valley. There are now 42 major caves in existence together with hundreds of others scattered around, 31 on the east bank and 11 on the west bank. Clear water runs through between banks where thick woods of elms grow, hence the name of Yulin Grottoes ( Elm Grottoes) was called.
