Leshan Giant Buddha

The Leshan Giant Buddha is a 71-metre tall stone statue that was built during the Tang Dynasty. It is a replica of Maitreya Buddha and is listed as a World Heritage Site. The Buddha is truly massive as you can see from the picture. You can opt to see the Buddha by walk, which will lead you to a steep flight of stairs, and a close up look of the Buddha. If you’re not a fan of heights, you can take a boat and enjoy the sight just as much. You can also take time to explore the park around the area where you will find nice pictures and beautiful temples.
