Nanshan Buddha

The Nanshan Buddha

The Nanshan Buddha is located in Longkou City’s Lushan Mountain tourist area of Nanshan Mountain in the Shandong Province. The Nanshan Great Buddha is the largest bronze sitting Buddha today in the world. The statue is 380 tons in weight and 38.66 meters high. There is a daunting amount of steps to reach the top of the temple (around 400) but at the top sits the chamber for 9,999 individual light up Buddha statutes. The Giant Buddha statue makes it 10,000! Well worth the trip up the seemingly never-ending stairs!
