Leshan Grand Buddha

Leshan Giant Buddha Scenic Area is the must-see highlight of Leshan City. The world-famous Giant Buddha, carved into the western river cliff face of Lingyun Mountain, was included by UNESCO on the list of the World Heritage sites in 1996. Praised as the largest and the tallest carved stone Buddha Statue in the world, the Giant Buddha stands 70 meters tall. What makes the Giant Buddha so amazing is not only because of the huge size, but also the drainage system made of hidden gutters and channels. Because of this complex system, rainwater can be drained off, and the inner parts of the Buddha can keep dry and survive intact till now.

1 st, April – 7 th, October ( Peak Seasons ): 07:30 – 18:30
