Leshan Giant Buddha

The China Cultural Center in Brussels and the Sichuan Provincial Administration of Culture and Tourism take a look at the Leshan Giant Buddha in honor of the Center’s fifth anniversary and the Mid-Autumn Festival.

The Leshan Giant Buddha, finished in the Tang dynasty, is located in the Mount Emei Scenic Area. With a height of 71 meters, it is the tallest Buddha statue in the world and the largest carved stone statue in China. The Leshan Giant Buddha embodies the development of Chinese Buddhism: first introduced in China many centuries ago and now a significant part of Chinese traditional culture.
