Built in the Northern Wei Dynasty, the Xumishan Grottoes are found at the eastern foot of Xumi Mountain. Today, 132 rock caves remain, and they are distributed over eight mountain cliffs. Due to long years of weathering, human damage and natural disasters, however, only 20 caves are relatively intact.

In the grottoes of Xumi Mountain, there are also many inscriptions from Tang, Song, Western Xia, Jin and Ming times.
