Surging from Jishi Gorge, the Yellow River goes into Bingling Gorge where the most attractive scenic spot -- Bingling Temple Grotto is situated. The Grotto is composed of Upper Temple and Lower Temple. It has been 1600 years since the Lower Temple was established in the Western Qin Dynasty (385-431) of the Sixteen States period (304-439). Nowadays, there are 216 grotto shrines, 815 figures of Buddha and 1,000 square meters mural. The Upper Temple, 2.5 kilometers from Lower Temple, was founded in the Tang Dynasty and the rehabilitation never ceased in the succeeding dynasties.
