Photographer's Note

These hanging temples are actually caves which are covered with a temple facade. The highest temple can be reached by a vertical tunnel between the lower temple and the higher one.
I am not sure how old the temples are, but Matisi (马蹄寺, Horse's hoof-temple) is on the ancient Silk road.
