Wannian Temple, Sichuan

Established in the fifth year (401) of the Long'an reign of the Eastern Jin Dynasty, Wannian Temple is the oldest temple on Emei Mountain. The temple's nation-wide renown stems from its remarkable statue of Samantabhadra Buddha, or Puxian Bodhisattva in Chinese, as well as the precious artifacts it houses. The statue, featuring the Bodhisattva Puxian riding a white elephant, is 7.3 meters high and weighs 62 tons. In China, Samantabhadra Buddha is associated with action, so the temple is considered an ideal place for confession and prayer.
