We all know of the massive Christ the Redeemer monument. Sitting atop the Corcovado mountain in Brazil’s Tijuca Forest National Park, Christ the Redeemer is one of the seven manmade wonders of the world. It is a must-see for travellers to Brazil, but there is another impressive statue of Jesus Christ unbeknownst to most conventional travellers. While Christ the Redeemer towers above Rio de Janeiro at 38 metres in height, this statue sits 17 metres below sea level.

China – Mount Emei Scenic Area, including Leshan Giant Buddha Scenic Area

Leshan, a city in southwest Sichuan province, is worth a try for both its natural scenery and historical architecture.

The city was an important point along the South Silk Road 2,000 years ago. Buddhism was introduced into Leshan via the route.

The first temple of Mount Emei, about 37 kilometers away from downtown Leshan, was built in the first century AD, marking the beginning of the city becoming an eastern holy land of Buddhism.

People in Leshan started to carve an unprecedented, huge Buddha statute in 713. It took 90 years to complete the 71-meter-tall stone effigy.

Mount Emei Scenic Area, including Leshan Giant Buddha Scenic Area, was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. The Dongfeng Weir, which dates back more than 350 years, was included on the list of Heritage Irrigation Structures in 2014.
