Legends say that this sandalwood sculpture almost 2,5-meters tall is over 2,5 thousand years old. The statue is kept in Eguytuysky datsan in Eravninsky district and is a sacred Buddhist relic. It is said that this is the only image of Buddha made during his lifetime, although there is no proof of that. Guides tell about the long trip this statue made from India to Buryatia and also why this Sandalwood Buddha has very long arms.
