Tourists filter down the stairs along side the giant Buddha. The Leshan Giant Buddha is located to the east of Leshan City, Sichuan Province, at the head of three rivers: the Min River, the Qingyi River, and the Dadu River. In December, 1996, the giant Buddha was included by UNESCO on the list of the World Heritage sites. The statue took people more than 90 years to carve. During these years, thousands of workers had expended their efforts on the project. The Leshan Giant Buddha is the largest carved stone Buddha in the world.
