Exploring the Bonna Cliff Carvings: Famous Glimpse Nyingchi

Unveiling the Mystique of Bonna’s Ancient Carvings

Situated at the foothills north of Bonna Village, in the Bayi District of Nyingchi, lies a remarkable testament to the spiritual and artistic heritage of the region: the Bonna Cliff Carvings. These sacred carvings, divided into two groups, stand as silent guardians of history, capturing the essence of Buddhist devotion and artistry.

A Dual Legacy in Stone

The first group of carvings features two venerable figures: Sakyamuni Buddha and Phagmo Drupa Dorje Gyalpo (1110—1170), revered figures in Tibetan Buddhism. The Sakyamuni Buddha, measuring 0.72 meters in height, is depicted in the traditional pose of meditation, draped in a monk’s robe, with a serene expression that evokes a sense of peace. Next to him, the carving of Dorje Gyalpo, standing at 0.7 meters, showcases the spiritual leader in monastic attire, his hand gesture symbolizing the subjugation of demons. This set of carvings, detailed through line engravings, has been anointed with butter by worshipers over the years, adding a layer of devotion to the art.

Approximately 2 kilometers away, the second group of carvings presents another depiction of Sakyamuni Buddha alongside a Four-Armed Avalokiteśvara (Chenrezig) Bodhisattva, both standing 1.55 meters tall. Although weathered by time, these figures continue to exude a profound spiritual presence, connecting onlookers to the deep roots of Buddhist practice in the area.

Journeying to Bonna’s Sacred Art

Located about 30 kilometers from Bayi Town and accessible by road, the journey to Bonna Village offers not just a pilgrimage to these ancient carvings but also an immersion into the stunning landscapes of Nyingchi. Whether you choose to drive yourself or opt for a hired car, the route promises breathtaking vistas and a serene adventure into Tibet’s spiritual and natural beauty.

As these ancient carvings bridge the past with the present, they invite travelers to explore the depth of Tibet’s religious art and the enduring faith that has shaped the land and its people.
