Bezeklik Thousand Buddha Caves' Paintings and Ryukoku Museum

Very interesting Buddhist complex Bezeklik Thousand Buddha Caves situating between Turfan and Shanshan (China) is now presented in Japanese Ryukoku Museum in private Ryukoku University.

There are pictures representing different lives of Buddha Sakyamuni were in the very eng corridor. After I've watched some of the videos available in YouTube, I can't understand how the painters were able to make this works. I would give the name of one of the marvels of the world to this work. But, as they say, it's better to see once than ti hear 10 times. The first video is about the Bezeklik Caves and the second video is about the exposition in the museum of Ryukoku.


  1. Wow, that's interesting. It makes once gasp to think that Buddhism in olden days inspired man to create. I have seen some of these paintings in Myammar but there are lots more that we can see in China, India and elsewhere in Asia.

  2. There are many Buddhist marvels discovered in the last period. It's always about so great capacities of human beings.
