Chengdu, is home to the Leshan Giant Buddha Scenic Spot, which was named after the giant statue of Buddha. Carving of the giant statue begun in the Tang Dynasty took more than 90 years. The river below the statue’s locations was a very dangerous one for ships going down the river, and many people were killed each year. The monk Hai Tong believed that by building the statue, the river gods would be appeased, and it would save many lives. Over 233 feet in height and 28 feet in width, the Leshan Giant Buddha is the biggest colossus in the world.
