Maitreya Buddha, Nubra Valley

This one of the breathtaking statues I have ever seen..

His Holiness the Dalai Lama blessed a newly installed Maitreya statue during a ceremony at Ladakh’s Disket Monastery (Dekyi Gonpa in Tibetan) on Sunday.

 

Dressed in their best traditional costumes, a large number of local people attended the ceremony during which many important dignitaries including His Eminence the 102nd Gaden Tripa, J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and Thiksey Rinpoche were present.

The 100 feet high statue of Maitreya (Gyalwa Jampa) was built at a cost of around Rs 2 crores with the collaboration of Disket Kunrog Tsogpa and Disket Jamgon Sarsheng Nyamrog Thundel Tsogpa.
