Ranawana Buddha (IMG_0675b)

The Ranawana Buddha near Kandy, Sri Lanka, is the world's tallest Walking Buddha standing at 80 feet (24 metres) in height.

The statue shows the Buddha performing the Abhaya Mudra, or gesture, with his right hand. This gesture signifies the bringing of peace and benevolence and the dispelling of fear.
