The Longyou Caves were only discovered late in the 20th century. At least 24 caves have been discovered so far. All of which were carved by hand. Although the overall excavation involved almost a million cubic metres of stone, there is no historical record of them or evidence of the work. Their origin is a complete mystery. At present there is no explanation for their existence. They represent one of the largest underground excavations of ancient times.

Well, to actually help the OP, one tonne will cover approximately ten square metres at 50mm thick. That goes for pretty much all common materials, except soil which is much lighter per cubic metre. Oh, and those bulk bags are approx. half a cubic metre, or one tonne. We used to put a tonne in each, but we started to see our sales drop, so we acquired bags from all our local competitors, and weighed them. The amounts in some were, quite frankly, embarrassing, given that most of the local…
