In the year 336 AD, the Buddhist monk, named The Zun, suddenly had a vision of a thousand Buddhas in the cliffs of the desert on the Silk Road. So he built the first temple, and named it Mogao who served in the desert above.

But he did not know that this cave was built by itself, and multiplied by thousands, and became the great Buddhist treasure in China. Also, he did not know either that these caves had been included in UNESCO World Heritage (United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization) in 1987.

The number of tourists visiting the spot reached about 378 miles in 2009. In the following sections, we will explore these caves in depth.
