This impressively crafted Buddha has glass eyes that seem quite lifelike. The soles of its large, SUV-sized feet contain the 108 symbols of Buddhism. A mural on a nearby wall graphically illustrates Buddha's life. With descriptions written in English, it is a good place to learn more about this religion. When finished, you can stop by one of the many palm readers to get your fortune read.
