Tallest and Greatest Statues of Buddha

Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhartha Gautama or Buddha is the founder of Buddhism. Gautama is the primary figure in Buddhism, and accounts of his life, discourses, and monastic rules are believed by Buddhists to have been summarized after his death and memorized by his followers. Various collections of teachings attributed to him were passed down by oral tradition, and first committed to writing about 400 years later. (Wiki)
