Thread: Chuang Yen Monastery

    Default Chuang Yen Monastery

    This Saturday I went mushroom picking near Sold Springs and Carmel and stopped at Chuang Yen Monastery.

    The building is 84 feet tall, contains 24,000 square feet of space and can accommodate 2,000 people in the main hall. Inside the Hall is a 37-foot statue of the Buddha Vairocana - the largest Buddha statue in the Western hemisphere. Encircling the large statue are 10,000 small statues of the Buddha on a lotus terrace.
