Life of the Buddha Museum welcomes visitors with a 4D movie theatre showing “Poor Girl’s Lamp” and “Life of the Buddha” films before leading into a walking tour of Buddha’s life stages. Visit the Museum of Underground Palaces to see sacred objects and written sutras. On the Big Buddha Terrace, you can join worshipers who walk around stupas.
