City Guide -- Leshan

Travel Guide of Leshan in Sichuan Province

 

 

Leshan is a pretty little city situated in the southwest of Sichuan Province, about 180km from Chengdu and 20km from Mt. Emei. This 1300-year-old market town has recently undergone major reconstruction work but fortunately remains a pleasant place to visit and take a look at the biggest Buddha in the world!

Leshan Giant Buddha, the largest stone sculpture of Buddha in the world, sits at the confluence of the Minjiang, Dadu and Qingyi rivers. According to records, the carving of this giant Buddha was begun in the first year of the reign of the Tang Emperor Xuanzong (713 AD), and completed in the 19th year of Emperor Dezong (803 AD), a total of 90 years.

Taller by 17 meters than the standing Buddha in Afghanistan, Leshan Giant Buddha is therefore the tallest Buddha in the world and in 1996, it was added to the World Natural and Cultural Heritage List.
