What people are saying:

Amazing! Sometimes I really admiring what human hands can create! There is not enough words in any language to describe it. I was surprised. Do not miss the chance to see the miracle of the world! I recommend both to take boat trip and to climb. About climbing, yes, there are many people, but just ignore them and enjoy the ancient masters creation!

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.
