Altar Sculptures

East Great Hall, Foguang Si

The long platform altar inside the East Great Hall enshrines three Buddhas: Shakyamuni (shown here), Amitabha, and Maitreya, with their attendants1. The unfortunate iron grill was erected some time ago to protect the precious statues from thievery.

1Identification of the Buddhas is per the temple's signage.
