Grand Buddha. The figure is a major attraction, and is one of the largest Buddha statues in the world. Though the main draw is the Buddha at the top, there's several locations you can stop by before you make your way to the top. Near the entrance, if you walk straight, there is a water show that comes on (every hour if I'm not mistaken). When you do reach the top, you can see the Buddha's left and right palm has the word "wish" in Chinese; the tour guide said it's a sign that the Buddha wishes happiness to the world, and on his chest the word "character" represents virtue. Pretty cool stuff!

Lingshan was one of my favorite stops while travelling in China a couple of years ago. It is located in the town of Mashan and in close proximity to Lake Taihu. The Grand Buddha is a towering structure comparable to the Statue of Liberty. Below the statue there is also a temple worth checking out.

There is another statue nearby in the shape of a lotus flower that rotates with music playing with a baby Buddha popping up at the end as part of the show.

Also within the confines of the same park is Lingshan Brahma Palace which was built at a huge cost with heavy use of gold. Inside is a church like hall filled with plenty of religious imagery. Though it was interesting to see a lighted ceiling that is better suited for a nightclub.
