This Buddha statue is the biggest reclining Buddha in the world, and when you see it you will be amazed! I enjoy the outside surroundings rather than climbing up towards the Buddha.

We visited the largest reclining buddha and were pleased to find out we could go inside. The statue is not finished yet but we could see that the inside of it is like a Buddha museum with many statues representing their religion. The sheer size...More

They say this is the largest statue of Buddha in the world! There is also a huge line of monk statues as you come up the road. There is a mausoleum of the man who founded this place. Overall, worth a stop!

A rather kitsch and depressing place to visit, so unless you're keen to say you've been to the largest lying down Buddha in the world, give it a miss.

You really can get inside Buddha’s head – literally! Inside the Buddha are dioramas of his life. If your guide is any good s/he will know most of the stories they depict. TIP: Use your smart phone to record the stories, they’ll complement any pictures...More
