Impressive Buddha, but unfortunately when we visited it, it was completely in bamboo scaffolding for restoration purposes. See picture. Still interesting also how the scaffolding was done

Large reclining Buddha under rooted pagoda. Watching the groups of people performing the sweeping ritual is fascinating. They form a line armed with brooms and sweep pools of water away moving quicky down the side of the Buddha statue.

The size of this huge and very modern Buddha is really impressing. This year we went there again the second time because it's quite special. When nearby it's nice to have a look at it.
