Highest Buddha Statue to Appear in Kyzyl

In 2012, the Russia's largest Buddha statue will be built on a mountain in Kyzyl. The 15-meter gilded sculptural composition will consist of the six-meter throne with a sitting Buddha, meditating in the lotus position. Construction work started last year by volunteers.

      Installed at a height of two thousand meters above sea level, the monument will be visible from anywhere in the Tuvan capital.

      Currently, the world's highest Buddha statue is the 128-meter monument "Spring Buddha", located in China's Henan Province.
