The Qianfoya Cliffs are located on the banks of the Jialing River on the edge of Guangyuan City. The ancient and modern cattle trails pass by. There are more than 400 caves left on the cliffs of about 400 meters long. The earliest grottoes were excavated in the Northern Dynasties. Part of it was excavated in the Tang Dynasty. Qianfo Cliff can be compared with the northern caves of the Central Plains in the same period. These caves were mostly excavated by officials from the two Beijing (Chang'an, Luoyang) areas, representing the popular style and artistic level of Buddhist stone carving art in the two Beijing areas.
Guangyuan Qianfo Cliff is the largest group of grottoes in Sichuan. The cliff statues began in the Northern Wei Dynasty. After nearly 1500 years, they were 45 meters high and more than 200 meters long on the cliffs.
