Additional Information

Introduction

The Leshan Giant Buddha is located on a rock wall of the Lingyun Mountain at the junction of Leshan's Min River, Qingyi River, and Dadu River in Sichuan. It is a sacred place for Buddhist and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Leshan Giant Buddha depicts a seated image of Maitreya and it is an exquisite piece of cliff-carving work from the Tang Dynasty. The colossal statue is about 70 metres high and over 1,300-years-old, making it the largest stone Buddha in the world, and by far the tallest pre-modern statue. It took an astonishing three generations of craftmen and 90 years to complete. When viewing the tall and majestic Giant Buddha, one cannot help but marvel at the wisdom of the ancients. In the absence of modern large-scale tools, they were still able to leave such a legacy.
