Since the Taliban destroyed the Buddha carvings in Afganistan, the giant Buddha at Leshan has taken the title of world’s largest Buddha.
I took a boat trip rather to look at it rather than climb to the top as I figured I’d get a better feel for the scale of the giant Buddha and I wasn’t wrong, it’s truly awe inspiring! I’ve just posted some pictures in the gallery.
I’m now in the Emei Moutains, the spiritual home of Buddhism in China visiting the temples. More tomorrow.
