  • A world record authentication agency said a collection of 500,000 stones adorned with Buddhist inscriptions in southwest China is the world’s largest stone carvings of the Buddhist canon when stacked on top of one another.
  • The stones, which cover an area of 695 sq m – the size of about two IMAX cinema screens – were given world record status by the World Record Certification Agency, a London-based company that is similar to Guinness World Records but is less famous.
