Leshan Giant Buddha

Leshan Giant Buddha

The Leshan Giant Buddha is a statue carved straight from the cliff on the river of the Sichuan province in China near Leshan. The largest stone Buddha in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Started construction in 713, the finished Buddha was then covered in a wooden covering plated with gold but looted by the Mongols after. Since then the statue has been exposed as shown in the photo.
