A Hidden 600-Year-Old Buddha Emerges After Water Levels Drop In China
January 16, 2017
A 600-year-old Buddha statue has been discovered in China's Jiangxi Province after water levels fell during renovation work.
A local villager spotted the head of the Buddha when the water level fell by more than 10 meters during work on a hydropower gate.
Archaeologists say the statue could date back to Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).
The statue is potentially just the tip of an untapped archaeological treasure trove. A base of a temple hall was also found under the water.
An underwater archaeology team is currently investigating what they believe is the ancient town of Xiaoshi.
