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!
One thought on “Giant Buddha, Leshan, China”
That is some giant Budda, goodness it must have taken them years to craved that statue from the mountain. That gold statue with the man that has that scary face or mad face, watch out for him. Did you rub the belly of the fat Budda for luck? Hey Harold you resemble the Budda a little. Is the Giant Budda sitting? Cause he looks like he is. Enjoy Love ya both God bless
