City Guide -- Zhangye

Travel Guide of Zhangye
 
 
 
 
About 450km northwest of Lanzhou, Zhangye was one of the most important Silk Road outposts along Hexi Corridor. Marco Polo says he stayed a year here with his father and uncle.
 
 
The impressive attractions are the Big Buddha Temple and the Wooden Pagoda Temple.

 
The Big Buddha Temple houses a 34m-long sleeping Buddha. This clay statue is the largest indoor reclining Buddha in China and was built in 1103. During the Ming Dynasty, Zhangye was an important garrison town for soldiers guarding the Great Wall, and today the road from Wuwei to Zhangye is still a good place from which to view the Wall.
 
 
The Wooden Pagoda Temple was built in early 557-588 A.D. of the Northern Zhou Dynasty. Records show that the pagoda had been renovated several times in the past. Nowadays, Zhangye Folk Customs Museum is located in the Wooden Pagoda Temple, which forms a more complete architectural building complex.
