Shibaoshan (Stone Treasure Mountain Grottes)

Shibaoshan Stone Treasure Mountain
Shibaoshan Stone Treasure Mountain Grottes
About 80 km to the northwest of Dali or 75 km to the southwest of Lijiang are the Stone Treasure Mountain Grottoes, a quite large, expansive, not very high, but lovely mountain, with tracts of old-growth cypress and some fabulous sights. There are three temple groups; Stone Bell, the most famous; Lion Pass; and Shadeng village. The Stone Bell monastery group includes some of the best Bai stone carvings in southern China and offer insights into life at the Nanzhao court of the 9th century. One of the best caves features images of Geluofeng, the fourth king of the Nanzhao Kingdom. The sculpture of the Eight Kings in China is also among the finest works of Buddhist art in China. and then, ahem, the racy part for which the mountain is rather well known; carvings of female genitalia, which local women visit to boost their fertility. The local PR word from government, not from 12visitchina:¡±This carving is the only case of engraved vulvas placed on equal terms with the Buddha and God in the world.¡± Goodness.
