    This huge Bodhisattva statue was built in 1976 as a monument to victims of war in general. The 18-meter tall statue sits on the back of turtle! Rather, a temple designed to look like one. Inside the statue, there is a Foucault Pendulum whose size is out-measured only but those in Paris and St. Petersburg. The temple bell tolls at 11:02am everyday, the same time of the atomic explosion. Note that this is a newer temple to replace one built in 1628 and destroyed by the bomb. It in no way resembles the original.
