The free-standing limestone buddha statue is 11 meters (36ft) tall and is supposed to be the tallest free-standing statue of Buddha in the world, although some say that the Avukana Buddha Statue is also the tallest.
The Avalokitesvara statue, 10 meters (32ft) tall is on the opposite side. It is a beautiful statue.
These statues were discovered in the 1950s and restored between 1989 and 1991.
