It was the fourth day of the Chinese New Year (and in the Lunar Calendar) we paid our visit to the Wuxi Mt. Lingshan Buddha.
A lot of new attractions have been added to the “theme park” or rather the site since my last visit about 8 years ago.
The visitor count on that day was estimated to about 40 thousands and it received more than 50 thousands strong few days back. Whatever China does, it’s on the (massive) grand scale.
The Wuxi Fangong Palace is one of the latest additions to the site. It hosted the second World Buddhist forum in 2009. Let’s take a peek inside!

The Jin Mao Tower (simplified Chinese: 金茂大厦; traditional Chinese: 金茂大廈; pinyin: Jīn Mào Dàshà; literally “Golden Prosperity Building”) is an 88-story landmark supertall skyscraper in the Lujiazui area of the Pudong district of Shanghai, People’s Republic of China. It contains offices and the Shanghai Grand Hyatt hotel. Until 2007 it was the tallest building in the PRC, the fifth tallest in the world by roof height and the seventh tallest by pinnacle height. Along with the Oriental Pearl Tower, it is a centerpiece of the Pudong skyline. Its height was surpassed on September 14, 2007 by the Shanghai World Financial Center which is next to the building. The Shanghai Tower, a 128-story building located next to these two buildings and now under construction, will be even taller.
