The Giant Buddha Statue at Leshan, China
The Buddha was created in the 9th Century A.D. during the Tang Dynasty, and sits at the confluence of three rivers. Access is either by boat or down a steep trail off the the left side. The statue is 233 feet tall, and took nearly 100 years to carve. It is an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
