Abstract

Jianchuan Shizhongshan Grottoes were the largest Buddhism grotto during Nanzhao and Dali Kingdoms, which are located in Shizhongshan Mountain of Shibaoshan Mountain, 30.5km southwest from Jianchuan County, Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province. The paper introduces the compelling reason of formation of Jianchuan Grottoes, whose important reason of selecting site was that the shape of Shizhong Mountain was like the head sculpture of Sakyamuni very much, which made a natural Buddha head.
