Image This statue had been vandalized by  those seeking hidden treasures and was  found  around 1886. It is  7 ft 3 inches in height and has been   renovated  later.  It depicts the meditating Buddha   in  ‘Samadhi’ posture. Recently  a roof had been hoisted over it to save it from the elements.

This statue is found near a ‘ Bodhi Ghara’, a building  constructed over a Bodhi . This is one of the statues of the Buddha  with the back  leaning to the Bo Tree.  This is the only statue of out of them which remain today. Of course the ruins of the other three statues could be seen .
