For ten days, the world's largest Jade Buddha statue will be in full view at the Penang Times Square. Brought together by Chokyi Gyaltsen Centre (CGC), this statue is carved from an 18-tonne gemstone uncovered in Canada to replicate a splitting image of the famed Buddha statue in the Mohabodhi Stupa, India. The tour will host a series of chanting sessions, relic blessings, Tibetan sand mandala exhibition and Pindapata alms round.
