World’s biggest jade Buddha statue displayed in Binh Duong

Binh Duong, November 14 (VNA) - One of the world’s biggest Buddha statues carved from precious jade will be displayed at Hoi An Pagoda in Binh Duong province from November 18-23.

The Venerable Thich Minh Luc, secretary general of the provincial Buddhist Shangha, said the jade statue, with a weight of four tonnes and height of 4.2 metres, will be on display for a week. It will then be brought to Go Ken Pagoda in Tay Ninh province’s Hoa Thanh district on November 25.

The organisers and local authorities have set up free parking lots near the pagoda to make it more convenient for people to visit.

The statue will then be brought to Australia, its final destination, after its journey across 20 countries and 90 cities.
