On top of lovely Thiksey Gompa there is a huge room where this three floor Buddha is kept.

Only the highest Lamas have got access to the books and holy artifacts inside it's body.

Antonio, great close up.

Amanda, believe or not, it's not a close-up. The statue is so big that there is no need to use any zoom...

What are the approximate dimensions of this statue?.

It's about 15 meters tall, and took four years to be built. Once it was, Dalai Lama himself visited Thiksey.

Just to have an idea, I remember that the ear you can see on the picture was as big as me!

Thank you, I am always curious about detail.
