保灵山 Bao Ling Shan Temple


The Floating Buddha was found in the Lundu estuary located in the Malaysian state of Sarawak on the island of Borneo by several boys after the tsunamis resulting from the 2012 Indian Ocean earthquakes. The owner of Bao Ling Shan Temple heard about the boys find and purchased the Buddha from them.

The origin of the statue is unknown, but is believe to have drifted from a neighboring country after being pulled out to sea by the tsunami. Based on the statues look, it is possible it came from as far away as Thailand. 

The temple itself is set inside of a small cave that is bright, clean, and easily accessible. It is also very close to Fair Cave and is free of charge to enter.
