Little bit about Aukana Buddha Statue

This is the most perfectly preserved ancient statue in Sri Lanka. It is a perfect 12m high statue of Buddha that is adored by pilgrims from around the Island. The Aukana statue has gained even greater significance in the Buddhist world. It is a magnificent statue which has been carved out from a single rock that turned out to be the tallest statue in existence today. It is absolutely a glorious image of Lord Buddha with the curled hair that sprouts the flame signifying the power of supreme enlightenment. The statue is large and stands straight up with the feet firmly planted on the lotus stone pedestal, thus the body retains a graceful quality that is enhanced by beautifully flowing drapery clinging to the body.
