Reclining Buddha, Polonnaruwa, Sri lanka
a close-up of the famous reclining Buddha of Polonnaruwa.
The Buddha statue lying on its stone cushion is actually 14 metres long.
By the way, the reclining Buddha depicts the moment when Buddha enters the Nirvana - at the end of his life.
A sitting and a standing Buddha statue are nearby.
