The Mogao Grottoes are considered one of the most important collections of Buddhist art in the world. At its peak during the Tang dynasty (618–907), the site housed 18 monasteries, more than 1400 monks and nuns, and countless artists, translators and calligraphers. {Lonely Planet}

Unfortunately for my post but fortunately for preservation no pictures are allowed in the caves in order the conserve the art (they even closed the door after each group).
