Great Buddha Statue, Bodh Gaya

Categories: Monuments, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 170 reviews on the web
Towering 25 m (82 ft) tall overhead, Great Buddha Statue took 12,000 masons seven years of labor to complete. Depicted in a state of deep meditation, the Buddha rises imposingly from the ground, surrounded by smaller statues and carefully planted trees. If you have any questions, the security guards speak multiple languages and will happily share information. Note that the prime time to take pictures is earlier in the day, since the statue becomes a backlit silhouette later on.
