The Big Buddha
The Big Buddha site is developing rapidly. The scaffolding is off the main image now and the marble tiles have been added so it is sparkling in the sun...looks very impressive. The building relies on donations and now there are many things for sale...all to do with Buddhism...lots of interesting things to put in your house!
Here's our Culture Vultures along with their well dressed tour guide.......
When the Temple is finished it will be amazing. There is a pictorial representation on the site as to how the whole project will look on completion...it is going to be a major tourist attraction...it really will be amazing.
I don't know how long it's going to take to competely finish...it is a massive project. Maybe another five years...but in Thailand, time has very little meaning.
