My wife and I were grateful for having visited the first Buddhist temple in China built in the 1st century A.D. in the beautiful surroundings of Summit Mount Emei. The Giant Buddha is the tallest premodern statue in the world. 阿弥陀佛。

Really cool for a day trip from Chengdu! Easy to get here by buses & trains, requires a lot of walking/stairs, but totally worth it! It was SUPER HOT AND HUMID when we went, but it was still an awesome ay.

Magnificent carving. Need to be fit to climb up and down the path. Can also explore other attractions inside the area like the fishing village and Wuyou Temple.
