We journey eastward from Chengdu to Leshan, China, where the legend of the giant Buddha is told. The trail is fraught with danger. Steep climbs, tomblike caves, and tigers, oh my!
But sanctuary can be found in the nearby temples, if you wish.
But as the adventure continues, you finally come across it:
Over 230 feet tall, it is the tallest stone Buddha ever carved.
You just feel like an ant next to this thing! 🐜
Amazing, a monk started construction on this in 713!
