4. Emperors Yan And Huang
The faces of both Emperor Yan and Emperor Huang sit atop this mountain--or, shall we say, were carved from the mountain. The monument scends upward from the Yellow River, complete with a 180-foot or 55-meter platform that holds up the 167-foot or 51-meter busts. It took 20 years to finish making the busts, which were completed in 2007. It cost China $22.5 million to build. That seems like a steep price, but the sculptures bring in a lot of tourism, so it all sorts itself out. After all, the statues were made as a testament to China’s politics and economy.
3. Laykyun Sekkya
Here it is, the third-tallest statue in the world: Laykyun Sekkya! It is 381 feet or 116 meters tall, standing on a 44-foot or 13.5-meter throne. Construction of this enormous monument began in 1996 and was completed 12 years later in 2008. Chief Abbot Ven. Narada commissioned the project and dedicated the sculpture to Gautama Buddha. Local people donated to the temple, which is where all the funding for the project came from. If you want to see it in person, book a flight to Monywa, Myanmar and make your way to the Khatakan Taung village.
2. The Spring Temple Buddha
This colossal statue is located in the Lushan County of Henan, China and is the second tallest statue in the world. Tourists must travel to the Fodushan Scenic Area to witness the size of the Spring Temple Buddha for themselves. When you combe the size of the pedestal, the statue measures 502 feet or 153 meters tall. Construction started in 1997 and was completed in 2008. It was named the “Spring Temple” Buddha because of the nearby hot spring where the water is said to have curative properties.
