BÌNH DƯƠNG – One of the world’s largest Buddha statues carved from precious jade will be displayed at Hội An Pagoda in Bình Dương Province from November 18-23.

The Venerable Thích Minh Lực, secretary general of the provincial Buddhist Shangha, said the jade statue, with a weight of four tonnes and height of 4.2 metres, will be on display for a week. It will then be brought to Gò Kén Pagoda in Tây Ninh Province’s Hòa Thành District on November 25.

The organisation board and local authorities have set up free parking lots near the pagoda to make it more convenient for people to visit.

The statue will then be brought to Australia, its final destination, after its journey across 20 countries and 90 cities. – VNS
