Myanmar

Phaya Thonzu Taung, i.e. the Mountain Temple of the Three Buddhas, located in Kyaihtiyo, features a large Buddha statue known as Gotama Buddha Phaya Gyi and seated in the lotus position, with the legs crossed on top of each other and the feet resting on the opposite thigh, the sole of the feet up.

 

The Buddha is performing an abhaya mudra, i.e. a hand position with the right hand raised and palm forward and that symbolizes ‘calm’, ‘reassurance’ and ‘no fear’.
