Great Buddha Bend Walking Tour

Works are presented here according to the way in which a modern day visitor to the site encounters them, beginning with tableau 24. This is different from in the past, where the worshipper would have proceeded from the temple above Great Buddha Bend just past the oxherding scenes or entered from the pathway beneath Great Buddha Bend, where one can still see tableau 31.
