The tallest statue of the Buddha in Russia will stand in Tuva

The tallest statue of the Buddha in Russia will stand in TuvaThe builders are planning to finish the tallest statue of the Buddha in Russia, which will stand in Kyzyl, in 2012.
Two years ago, Buddhist lamas proposed the idea to erect the tallest gilded statue of Buddha Shakyamuni in Russia near Kyzyl. The statue is to be 15 meters tall. The monument, located on Mt. Dogee, will consist of a 6-meter throne with the meditating Buddha seated on it in lotus pose. At first, the statue was supposed to be 40 meters tall. However, on the advice of the planners, the builders decided to decrease it to 15 meters to be better able to withstand seismic events. Even this will still make it the tallest in Russia.
