We were cruising on a boat gazing landwards from the river. In front of us is a giant Buddha which one would not be able to see the whole statue from the landside.
The view was awesome. On the left hand side of the Buddha, there were hundreds of people hanging on to the many flights of stairs trying to have a good view of the Buddha from a close distance. They appeared so tiny, so tiny that they just looked like ants.
It is believe that this giant Buddha was carved at this location to pacify the turbulent waters of the river.
I can think of other giant statues, say, those in Abu Simbel in Egypt. However, by comparison, they are not as tall.
The Buddha, sitting there, looks serene. One just wonders how much carving has to be carried out so that the Buddha was well recessed from the rock face.
So, another amazing view!
