Big Buddha of Leshan

The construction of the 71 m high Buddha of Leshan begins under the guidance of Chinese monk Haitong. It is thus up today at the world's largest sculpture of Buddha made of stone . It was carved from a rock at the confluence of the Min Jiang , Dadu and Qingyi rivers not far from the city of Leshan, in the southern part of Sichuan Province in China , during the Tang Dynasty . The Buddha looks out over Mount Emei Shan , one of the four sacred Buddhist mountains , as the rivers spread out at his feet. Haitong hopes with the construction to calm the troubled waters, which impaired navigation on the rivers.


After the death of the fourth imam, Ali Zain al-Abidin , there was a split among the Shiites : the Zaidis ("five Shiites") choose Zaid ibn Ali as their imam, while the Ismailis ("seventh Shiites") voted for them Muhammad al-Bāqir decide.
