A must see We went by boat to get a full view of Buddha It was worth it The boat stops for about 5 mins right in front of the Buddha You have to get a good spot in front at right side to take photos The guy on the boat touts for people who he can take a photos off He is loud and demanding Don't let him put you off The Buddha is so serene and calm It is like he is watching you only His face is a sight you can always see A wonderful piece of art Well done to Leshan Buddha Hope he brings luck, happiness and prosperity to all that make the effort to see him. I visited Le Shan Buddha with five friends over the holiday weekend in April bad idea I know but we had no other choice or time to visit. We had our own transport prearranged and arrived at the Buddha entrance at approximately 9am, it took a couple of hours to reach the Buddha from Chengdu city centre. By 9am the queue to get in was already really long and inside was just as busy. The queue inside to actually walk down the cliff to see the Buddha was massive and it took between 2. Having a good group of friends did make the time pass rather painlessly but my advice to anyone wanting to see the Buddha via the cliff route is to get an early night, get up REALLY early and beat the crowds because as impressive as the Buddha is, standing in queues for that long particularly in the heat is not fun. We didn't actually check out the queues for the boat but that may also be preferable. We really enjoy the 10 minutes ride on the boat. The boat first go down the river then turn and go up, alow us enough time to take photos of praying if you are budist.

Buddhism originated in ancient India and grew after Ashoka adopted it. According to Randall Collins, Buddhism was already declining in India by the 12th century, but with the pillage by Muslim invaders it nearly became extinct in India.
