Contest #779 – Buddha Dordenma Statue, Kuenselphodrang, Bhutan

First, an apology. One of our contestants pointed out, quite fairly, that the hint was written without proper level of respect to the Buddha and those who follow his teachings. For that lack of respect of the culture and the Buddha, I seriously apologize.
