    Default Great Buddha at Kamakura, Japan discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Great Buddha at Kamakura, Japan

    The Great Buddha of Kamakura is a bronze statue of Amida Buddha that is located on the grounds of the Kotokuin Temple. With a height of 13.35 meters, it is the second largest Buddha statue in Japan (the largest is located in the Todaiji Temple in Nara).



    The statue was cast in 1252 and originally located inside a large temple hall. However, the temple buildings were washed away by a tsunami tidal wave in the end of the 15th century, and since then the Buddha stands in the open air.

    This file has been in the database for a very long time, but the area just received a vast improvement in resolution. I suggest going back for another look as the statue is much clearer now.
