    Spring Temple Buddha, China

    [​IMG]
    Completed in 2002, the Spring Temple Buddha is both China’s and the world’s tallest statue at 128 m (420 ft). That figure is for the Buddha and its Lotus Throne: if you include the 25 m (82 ft) tall pedestal building the statue stands upon, the total height increases to an awe-inspiring 153 m or 502 feet! The statue and its associated facilities are located within the Fodushan Scenic Area in Lushan County, Henan province.
    [​IMG]
    The statue is a representation of the Vairocana Buddha, who in Chinese Buddhism is said to embody “shunyata”, the Buddhist concept of emptiness. Vairocana statues are often very large in size so that when in their presence, one can truly feel the lack of permanent identity and the accompanying emptiness of conditioned existence. Sure makes ME feel small!

    Laykyun Setkyar, Myanmar

    [​IMG]
    Laykyun Setkyar, located near Monywa, Myanmar, stands 116 m (381 ft) and stands on a 13.5 m (44.3 ft) tall throne. The main image above dates from 2006 when the massive monument was in its 10th year of construction – it formally opened in February of 2008.
    [​IMG]
    The Laykyun Setkyar complex features two enormous Buddhas: one standing and one reclining. Tourism to Monywa sparked by the unveiling of the Laykyun Setkyar statues has increased greatly, providing both income to local businesses and a window to the outside world for Burmese citizens of this culture-rich, ancient city.

    Ushiku Daibutsu, Japan

    [​IMG]
    The Ushiku Daibutsu, completed in 1993, stands 120 m (394 ft) tall including its 10 m (33 ft) high base and 10 m high lotus platform. The statue weighs just over 4,000 tons and is plated in bronze. Just to give one an idea of this statue’s immense size, consider these dimensions: its eyes are 2.55 m (8.35 ft) wide, its mouth is 4.5 m (14.76 ft) wide and its first finger stretches a full 7 m (23 ft) from base to tip.
    [​IMG]
    The Ushiku Daibutsu is located in Japan’s Ibaraki prefecture north of Tokyo and represents the Amitabha Buddha. Visitors can tour a 4-story museum built into the statue. Windows on the top floor look out through the statue’s chest, providing a birds-eye view of a flower garden and small animal park on the grounds below.

    Peter the Great Statue, Russia

    [​IMG]
    This monumental statue of Russian Czar Peter the Great towers 94 m (308 ft) into the Moscow sky… though the fact hardly pleases many Muscovites. The statue, created by Georgian architect Zurab Tsereteli and unveiled in 1997, regularly appears on lists of the world’s ugliest buildings, statues and monuments. The purpose of the statue was to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the Russian Navy.
    [​IMG]
    Rumors suggest that Zurab Tsereteli designed the statue to represent Christopher Columbus but could find no takers for it in the USA, Spain or Latin America. He then modified the work and offered the 600-ton piece to his good friend, Moscow mayor Yuri Luzhkov. Moscow’s current mayor, Vladimir Resin, has suggested the statue be moved to St. Petersburg but authorities there won’t touch it with a 308-ft pole.

    Great Buddha of Thailand

    [​IMG]
    Thailand boasts an abundance of large, golden Buddha statues but none can compare with the Great Buddha of Thailand, situated in the Wat Muang Monastery in Ang Thong province. The 92 m (300 ft) tall statue is 63 m (210 ft) wide at its base. Construction began on the Great Buddha in 1990 and 18 long years passed before it was finally completed!
    [​IMG]
    The Great Buddha of Thailand was designed according to the precepts of Theravada Buddhism. Visitors to the site, about 2 hours’ drive north of Bangkok, can also enjoy Wat Muang temple’s “Hell Park.” This Buddhist version of Dante’s Inferno features “macabre scenes of mutilation & death depicted through large colorful figures all set in different themed scenes.” Fun for the whole family!

    Dios mío me dio una sensacion inexplicable ver esas estatuas, son tan grandes que dan miedo, incluso parece que tienen un toque "apocaliptico" haha xd (no sabía con que otra palabra describirlo)

    The Ushiku Daibutsu is over owned omg, me imagino cada mañana despertando y ver esa enorme estatua, debe ser facil ubicarse por allí xD
