The rock carvings are an outstanding example of China’s grotto art in the middle and late period of ancient China.

So far, 50,000 statues and 100,000 inscribed Chinese characters have been identified. Seventy-five cliff statue sites are under state protection. 

Dazu was added to the World Heritage list on December 1, 1999.
