Mireuk Daebul (Great Statue of Maitreya Buddha) at Bongeunsa, a 1200 year old temple located in Samseong-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea.

Maitreya is the future Buddha who vows to save sentient beings in the era after the lifetime of Sakyamuni Buddha. This 23 metre high statue depicts Maitreya coming down to earth to save all those who are suffering. The stones used in construction of the statue in 1996 were carried all the way from Iksan in Jeolla Province, a stronghold of the Maitreya faith.

Taken with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH1 on 30th October 2012.
