Leshan Giant Buddha




The Leshan Giant Budddha is an enormous statue carved into the cliff side of Lingyun Mountain.

The buddha is over 71 meters tall with 28 meter wide shoulders and a 15 meter high head. More than 100 people can sit between the Buddha feet.
A local saying explains; "The mountain is a buddha, the buddha is a mountain".
