Han dynasty conceptions of the afterlife continued to be used in the shaping of mortuary culture in post-Han Gansu at Dingjiazha, Foyemiaowan, and Qijiawan and also in Buddhist sacred space in the earliest extant cave-temples at Dunhuang and Jintasi. By following the transmission of these plans we can begin to understand the complexity of the adaptation and assimilation of Buddhism in China.
