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

Il y a celui-ci, et plusieurs rochers avec des gravures Buddhistes du 1e siecle en Zanskar....mais au lieux Mussulmanes entre Kargil et Panikhar. La plupart des touristes ne les voient pas. Nous avons eu un chauffeur local (Muslim) de Kargil qui nous a apporte la. A cet endroit ( 5 km de la route principale, dans une vallee ou on cultive de l'orge) il n'y avait que des pres, et des femmes Mussulmanes qui traviallent. Pas de touristes, pas de signes, ...rien sauf le Buddha....
