This is a very very very very very big BUDDHA indeed. It’s the famous bronze statue of The Enlightened One at Kamukura in Japan. It was created in 1252 and completely filled the inside of a Buddhist temple. When a tsunami hit a few centuries later, the temple disintegrated but DAIBUTSU just sat there serenely. He still sits there to this day.
Did we mention he was big? He stands over 53 feet high (about 13.5 meters) by 97 feet in circumference. Hence the name ‘Daibutsu’, which in translation means ‘Really Quite Enormously Big Buddha’.
