2000 year old Maitreya Buddha

2000 year old Maitreya Buddha
5 meters high. Sankoo. Suru Valley, Zanskar. In a remote Muslim area of Kashmir, but here, unlike in Bamiyan, this is untouched, and almost never seen by tourists at all.

BASCLIN, Aixa, .t.a.o.n. and 2 other people have particularly liked this photo
