Archaeologists in China have commenced further investigations of a 600-year-old Buddha statue which was discovered in January this year in a reservoir in east China's Jiang-xi Province after water levels fell during renovation work.

A local villager had first spotted the head of the Buddha when the water level fell by more than 10 meters during work on a hydro-power gate.


The Buddha's head sits against a cliff and gazes serenely over the body of water. It has attracted many tourists as well as locals, who see it as an auspicious sign.

Archaeologists said the statue could date back to Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).

A base of a temple hall was also found under the water. Local records suggest the reservoir was located on the ruins of an ancient town called Xiaoshi.

An underwater archaeology team is investigating both the ancient town and the statue and working on a preservation plan.
