It was a huge area and it was beyond my expectations. The place is still being developed hence some areas are not yet accessible. An absorbing experience in visiting the Usnisa Palace which is several floors deep down from the ground level. An escalator takes visitors to a huge hall with numerous Buddha statues. Photos are allowed (no flashlight). The huge structure above ground is actually an enormous Buddha statue (lying down) and the Usnisa Palace is located under it. The park is very large so it is advisable to take the shuttle bus, at a small fee. One has to see it to believe it; it is quite amazing.One may wonder why the government has spent billions of RMB to build this religious complex at Nanjing; it might be that many people had lost their lives in Nanjing during WWII.
