Boddhi Tataung Pagoda Complex
Myanmar (Burma), Monywa, March 2012

This image shows the Bodhi Tataung Laykyun Setkyar Standing Buddha statue, the second-tallest statue in the world, at a total of 129 metres (including pedestal). This is the focal point of a sprawling site filled with Buddha statues, bodhi trees, and pagodas, established by the Bodhi Tataung sayadaw in the 1960s. It includes also a 95-metre long reclining Buddha statue: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monywa

Nancy, I have now included some information on the above image in the caption. The standing Buddha is 129 m. high and the reclining Buddha is 95 m. long. I couldn't find information on the matrial they used.
