At the ceremony, Most Venerable Thich Tam Vi, Head of Linh Phuoc Pagoda said, the statue, 17 metres high, was build with around 650,000 flowers during 36 days on the occasion of the Da Lat Flower Festival 2010. It stands in front of a seven-storey bell tower.
The statue, which earned a Vietnamese record in 2010 and an Asian record in 2012, has been re-made every two years.
Linh Phuoc pagoda boasts 13 Vietnamese records, one of Asia, and one world title.
