Maijishan Grottes at Tianshui, Gansu, are famous for the Buddhist sculptures and murals. We have a day trip to Maijishan from Xi'an. The name of Maijishan means 'wheat stack hill', which comes from the shape of the hill.

从西安去天水麦积山的距离有点尴尬:如果直接开车去单程差不多四小时;如果乘坐高铁去单程两小时,但是高铁站距离景区还有一小时距离。最后考虑到高铁安全还是买了高铁票,早班车去天水,下午五点从天水回西安。

以前坐火车到西安宝鸡,陇海线沿途从河南开始就是一片黄土高坡,到潼关以后开始八百里秦岭。从来没有去过宝鸡以西。穿越秦岭到四川倒是去过几次。原以为甘肃更是一片荒凉,没想到过了宝鸡却是山清水秀。只是在山中时大部分时间高铁行驶在隧道中,隧道的间隙窗外的美景一闪而过,拍张照片都要掐准时机才行。

纽约的地铁里基本没有手机信号。据说现在正在高价招标试图解决这个问题。我相信美国人的技术是很先进的,不能实现的事情多半不是因为技术,而是因为政治扯皮。跟纽约不同,到天水的高铁隧道里很多地方手机信号居然是畅通的。在车上查询了一下天水车站到麦积山的交通状况,发现下车以后可以乘坐公共汽车,也可以叫出租车。网上对天水出租车是各种恶评。

到了天水车站看到他们宣传天水市伏羲的故乡,这里还有个伏羲庙。伏羲就是三皇五帝,龙师火帝鸟官人皇中的龙师,也是传说中中国人的祖先。真的不知道他们如何确定伏羲的故乡在天水。

出站台以后首先看到出租车就去排队了。没几个人排队,还有人试图插队。上了出租车,司机果然不打表,一口价¥150。

也许是因为没有经过市区,感觉天水像个没有开发的县城。很惊诧地听司机讲天水的房价是每平米一万二,高于西安和兰州。天水的气候很好,一下火车就感觉到了,非常凉爽。除了这好气候,完全搞不懂天水的房价为何这么高。

到麦积山景区的路在扩建,我们花了一个小时到景区。修好以后时间应该会大大缩减。司机一路讲天水逸事,说中国腐败看甘肃,甘肃腐败看天水。在一些即将拆迁的区域看到老百姓突击建设了很多楼房,以求多得拆迁款。出租车司机还提到每月要交很多费用,钱不好赚。如果司机被欺压了,他们也只能欺压乘客。

景区入口的风景是这样的。茂林修竹,重峦叠嶂,还是很好的。

景区门票¥90。进门以后距离石窟还有一段距离,建议乘坐电瓶车,往返票价¥15。

麦积山石窟的入口是这样的。因为形如麦垛而得名。麦积山石窟跟莫高窟,龙门石窟,云冈石窟并称四大石窟

麦积山石窟内多是北魏到唐代的泥塑,能保存这么完好也是奇迹。

天王衣服上的纹饰。即使在这个年代穿这么件衣服也是很潮的。

我天朝文化真是博大精深

是啊,很丰富的文化遗产

This place is amazing. I would have a serious fear of heights but I would appreciate every second of it.

Yes, it's amazing. Though some sections are closed and most of the grottes are not open, the opened sections are very impressive.

It's beautiful but i might feel scared kniwing how high it is...

Yes, it's beautiful and a little scary. However, it looks very safe. Not sure, how did they do the work one thousands years ago.

What an incredible place! Beautiful photo's, and it doesn't seem too packed with people! Thanks for sharing, upvoted and followed!

When I visit it, it's not that crowded. But still many visitors. Because some passages are narrow, it can be jammed by people. Some photos show no visitor because that section is closed. At other locations, I need to wait some time to find a slot to take the photo with less people.

Everything that comes together falls apart. Everything. The chair I’m sitting on. It was built, and so it will fall apart. I’m gonna fall apart, probably before this chair. And you’re gonna fall apart. The cells and organs and systems that make you you—they came together, grew together, and so must fall apart. The Buddha knew one thing science didn’t prove for millennia after his death: Entropy increases. Things fall apart.

Yes, you are right, even some buddha's sculptures at Maijishan fall apart.
