Leshan Giant Buddha

Leshan Giant Buddha

Leshan Giant Buddha is now the largest existing cliff carving statue in China, and one of the best art treasures in Tang Dynasty (618A.D.-907A.D.). It also claims to the largest carved statue of Buddha in the world, nearly 71 meters high.

Located in the east of Leshan city, Leshan Giant Buddha is about 160 kilometers to Chengdu (capital of Sichuan Province) in the north. It sits in the cliffs of Mount Lingyun, at the confluence of three rivers, namely Dadu River, Qingyi River, and Minjiang River, just corresponding to the local saying, " The Mountain unveils a Buddha, while the Buddha fades into the mountain. "

The solemn Buddha is just as high as the mountain, with his foots on the rivers and hands on his knees, overlooking the whole Leshan city. There are also other two Dharma carvings in the cliffs on both sides of the Buddha, together with thousands of shrines, which seem to be a huge Buddhist art group of stone carvings.
