This is with 51 meters of height the biggest Bhudda statue in the world. Inside of its pedestal is a new but beautiful temple. A must see place!

A large statue of the Buddha with a shrine to the goddess tara inside. Vehicles can take you to the memorial, you can have a pleasant climb down stairs on the way back.
