Medicine Buddha found during excavation at Angor

An 800-year-old Medicine Buddha statue has been found at an 800-year-old site in Angkor Archaeological Park in Cambodia.

“We identified him because of an object in the palm of his hand…whose form is similar to a very small pyramid,” he said.

“With this discovery, we have finally proven that Buddhist medicine was practiced during the reign of Jayavarman VII under the blessing of the Medicine Buddha,” said Dr. Rethy Chhem, an authority on Angkorian hospitals and medicine.
