Where the giant buddhas are

Where the giant buddhas are

Stockton might not be on everyone’s radar for a short day trip. (If you are from Stockton, I welcome comments below. )

We came from Davis and had time for a short sightseeing stop. This one was a bit hard to find but impressive nonetheless.

The Wat Dhammararam Buddhist Temple allows visitors to view their giant sculptures. I do not know the stories they depict but they made me surely curious. (Actually their website summarizes some of the stories.)

And they are truly giant!

One little girl said to a statue: “Bye. I won’t see you again.” I turned around and saw a slaughtered figure on the ground. I smiled to myself at such carefreeness.

 

 

 

 

Everyone here was smiling and waving. Truly an enchanted place.Looks like the soccer goddess

 
My son even saw the soccer goddess. 🙂

Have you seen giant Buddha statues?
