The biggest buckle contains 16 standing Buddhas and 40 marginally lazier sitting ones (fun reality: having your photograph taken with your back to the Buddha is exceedingly hostile). Alternate caverns differ in size, however all are profoundly otherworldly places and the complex is as yet a working sanctuary.
