There are two distinct areas in this scenic spot, which are not actually demarcated on Google Maps. We started on the east side at the Oriental Buddha Scenic Spot entrance. This area has a large complex of caves where there are several rock face carvings and representations of Buddha and His devotees. Also there are references to the Indian roots of Buddhism. There is one area which is similar to The Elephanta Caves of Mumbai.

It is suggested that you have an English speaking interpreter as there are no English speaking guides in this area.

There are some sections which are authentic ancient, whereas some of them are newly made. I wasn't too critical with which is which. Just took in the "scenery" as it came.

After having viewed this area completely, we then moved on to the Giant Buddha attraction.

And yes, do remember to carry your passport, as the entrance to this attraction is free if you are above 60 years.

I believe this is the site that is connected to the Leshan Giant Buddha. The names change, so it's a bit confusing - it might also be called the "Leshan Giant Buddha scenic area." It is a separate park, and costs 80rmb to get in (it's 90rmb to see the Buddha). I say pay the additional money, this part of the park is lovely! I bought my ticket at the tourist villa (I think it's the Vacation Village) near the bridge/city entrance, and they drove me to the South gate because I bought both tickets.

Historically speaking, there is a great representation of different Buddhas all over the mountain. You can see the giant sleeping Buddha here as well - it's the first Buddha you see if you enter through the South entrance. I thought the climb up to the main temple was especially steep - I did not see a second staircase. It's a short climb, but it's not gentle. However, for the views and the stone carvings it is definitely worth the work. There are also a couple of temples along the way.

There are food stalls, souvenir stands, and squat toilets - so it's no different from the other tourist sites in that respect. A turnstile separates Leshan park from the Scenic Park.

Downside: The maps are a little confusing.

It is a 2 hours bus ride from Chengdu City to LeSan town and then took a van (local call it medium size bus) and took about 30minutes to reach the destination. The location is beside LeSan Big Buddha but with separate entrance and separate fee.

For slow traveler, took us about 3~4 hours to enjoy the old and new carving in the area. You will have to walk and there are many steps along the way. The main attraction is actually the 170m long sleeping buddha, but unfortunately, it can only be seen from far, and it's partly cover by trees.

Entrance fee (as at October 2015) : 80RMB

We visited the Buddha on a Friday so it was not too crowded. There are one ticket for the giant Buddha and another for the parc: we started with the giant buddha -if you have 2 hours , do not miss it. (you can buy the tickets separatly) Maybe because I saw so many pictures of the giant Buddha but I was not thrilled while the oriental parc = especially the Pharmacist cave is breathtaking! i don't wanna spoil but it says in the title , it is a cave so don't stop at the entrance and main statue there is a little path behind it , and theres much more to explore IN the cave. the map seems big but its not and you can go see all the spots in 2 hours. something like 70 or 80 yuans - really worth it.

We visited the Oriental Buddha Capital just before seeing Leshan Giant Buddha. We actually ended up seeing it by mistake after buying the combo ticket and not knowing what it was. Upon entering we were shocked at how beautiful the park was and how few tourists were there. The park contains thousands of buddha statues in amazing condition and is extremely atmospheric.
I would highly recommend visiting at the same time as seeing the Giant Buddha.

In retrospect I wish we would've spent more time here rather than queueing for the Giant Buddha. The park is really peaceful and the statues are well worth seeing.

As students in a Chinese university we got the park and the Giant Buddha for a total of just 100RMB, which was really nice.

Entrance ticket costs 80 yuan and if you follow the routes outlined in the map on the entrance ticket you will eventually reach the Great Buddha of Leshan, which costs another 90 yuan to visit.
We took a seven seater van from Xinnanmen bus station costing 54 yuan per person. The van driver brought us to the ticket counter, Inside the park, we saw many different Buddha statues, either in sitting, standing or sleeping posture. The statues were made of different materials such as stone, bronze or jade. There were also many temples to visit. Statues can also be found inside
caves.

This is some sort of Buddha theme park so we were unsure on the authenticity of some items but it was seriously cool to see a 55 m tall Buddha standing inside a cave, 170 m long Buddha carved into the side of a rock hill and many other large scale statues and carvings. The area has quite a bit of history with tombs dating back to when the giant Buddha work began. There are lots of English and Mandarin signs explaining the area's significance as well. We spent a few hours here appreciating the statues, carvings and scenery. Bring good shoes as the mossy sidewalks are very slippery. This area is very close to the Leshan Giant Buddha so if you are making a trip there this area is worth checking out as well complete. It costs 80 RMB to enter this area and is worth it. Do keep in mind there is a side cave filled with sexual depictions near the arhat area of the underground palace so cover your eyes...or don't.

This is a relative new venue. For those interested in Buddhism and the ancient art of rock-carving, it is an ideal venue to see, after touring the Leshan Giant Buddha. It is quite unique, with giant statues of Buddha (one 33 metres high, carved out of a mountain cliff face). Before going in I did not have high expectations. On the way out, I was really impressed.

Visited this on the way to Leshan Buddha. Follow the arrows if you don't read Chinese. Good directional arrows with some English words. Lot of Buddhist cultural history in short 2 hours. Take your time and enjoy the scenic views along the way.
