China World Heritage Tours

The Silk Road World Heritage Sites in China, which spans nearly 5,000 kilometres from Chang'an to the Tianshan Corridor, is home to the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, the Small Wild Goose Pagoda, the Xingjiao Temple Pagoda, the Big Buddha Temple Grottoes in Bin County; the ruins of the Yumen Pass, the Hanging Spring Settlement, the Maiji Mountain Grottoes, the Bingling Temple Grottoes, the Ruin of Gaochang, the Ruin of Jiaohe, and the Kizil Grottoes, etc.

A series of pagodas and cave temples spread from Qiuci (Kuqa County) in the west to Luoyang in the east, documenting the spread of Buddhism from India to the east via the Karakorum region and the evolution of the pagoda's architectural design as it absorbed indigenous ideas. In addition to the transport of goods and people, the Silk Road was a conduit for the exchange of ideas, beliefs and technological innovations, such as knowledge related to agriculture and town planning, which transformed urban space and many fundamental aspects of people's lives.
