Discover The world's largest buddha

The village of Taung Khatakan, near Monywa, is home to the tallest statue in the world! The Laykyun Setkyar is a giant 116m high Buddha that stands on a 13.5m high pedestal. Built between 1996 and 2008, it rises above a second statue of Buddha that also has some pretty impressive dimensions, but this one is lying down!
