Western Thousand-Buddhas Cave is located 35 kilometers (about 21.7 miles) southwest of Dunhuang, Gansu Province. It situated on a cliff in the western part of Mogao Caves, so it is named Western Thousand-Buddhas Cave.

Most of the caves were excavated during the North Wei Dynasty (386-543). But seven of the caves can not be reached, which makes them more mysterious. They are another important Buddhist spot. Tourists can only observe them from a distance.
