Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery

Interesting
Five hundred golden statues of arhats (disciples of Buddha) accompany visitors as they make their way up the steps (over 400) to the 10 000 Buddhas Monastery. There are in fact around 13 000 buddhas dotted around the 9ha grounds, each one unique. Hidden away amid this unusual collection is the embalmed and gilded body of the monk who founded the monastery.
