The Sichuan Province of China is filled with sacred areas of Buddhist worship. Two areas in the Sichuan Province will astound you with their tribute to Buddha. The first is the massive 71 meter high Buddha carved from a cliff in Lingyun Hill. The head alone is 14.7 meters high, with shoulders 34 meters across. On Mount Ermei, in the same region of Sichuan Province, you will find 14 story pagoda carved with 4,700 images of Buddha and the entire text of the Buddhist Sutra of the Huayan Sect. Your fascination with Buddhist history and beliefs can be fully explored with a journey to see these two incredible locations in the province.
