Statue of Buddha at Belum Caves


Jains and Buddhists monks were occupying the Belum Caves of Andhra Pradesh centuries ago. Many Buddhists relics were found inside the caves. Today there is a giant Buddha Statue near a hillock near the Belum Caves.

Looks graceful. Beautiful shot. There seems to be kind of competition between Buddha and Shiva. I have come across many such huge statues of Shiva at different places.
