The world’s largest reclining Buddha.

 This reclining Buddha impresses through its size, and not only from outside, but also from inside. Inside, there are 3 floors with innumerable rooms, each one with a scene of Buddha´s life. Many of them are still not finished, but worked out by artists. And vis-a-vis, on the opposite slope, they have started another reclining Buddha, even bigger, designated for 8 floors inside.
