Buddha - Chengde, China

Ok, that's not a buddha. Well, not really. And the picture isn't even straight, and the building is not complete. And I can't even remind why. But inside this building is located the tallest wooden buddha I have ever seen. Chinese people even claim it to be the biggest of the world. Just imagine how big it is when you see the entrance door and imagine the top of its head is just under the ceiling up there.

D'accord ce n'est pas une photo de bouddha. Enfin, pas directement. De plus la photo n'est pas droite et est mal cadrée. Et je ne sais plus pourquoi. Mais dedans se trouve le plus grand bouddha de bois que j'aie jamais vu. Le chinois le disent être le plus grand du monde. Imaginez sa taille en voyant la porte d'entrée et imaginez que le dessus de sa tête est juste sous le plafond, tout là-haut.
