Yeah.. I know about the Buddha statue in Hussain Sagar. I didn’t include it because it’s height is below 30m.

Anyone thought of marking all of these up in Google Earth and providing a .kmz file?

Just a suggestion in the off case anyone had a spare evening…

Have you had a look at the Yun gang shi ku in china near Shan xi? The caves there are very impressive with multiple multiple statues carved into the mountains.

Thanks for sharing these beautiful images! Very inspiring. Not only are these images big in size, they are also big in significance. Significance on humanity and spirituality! They are gifts from our forefathers.

May more grand images be built like those displayed here and envisioned in Kechara World Peace Centre by Tsem Tulku Rinpoche!

you have placed few no’s. IT is effective if places more No’s.

In INDIA We have countless No’s. please update it.
