Biggest Buddha known as Dafo in Leshan, China!

Biggest Buddha that is carved into the side of a mountain can be found right outside of Chengdu, China in Leshan. We climbed down several flights of narrow stairs and then, back up through a few caves and more stairs. Some stats on the Big Buddha of Leshan can be found at:

Above is a statue of Haitong, the Buddhist monk who developed the plan for the Big Buddha and raised money for this project. He lived in a tomb cave just to the right and behind his statue.

Biggest Buddha waterfalls!

Everyone was pretending to rub the Big Buddha's nose for good luck!

Talk about really big toes!
