Some 150 Buddhist monks and believers in white costumes wipe and sweep the 15-meter-tall Great Buddha statue which was built in 752 AD, at Todaiji Temple in Nara, western Japan. Monks and volunteers cleaned a year's worth of grime from the Great Buddha for the annual sprucing up as the rirual cleaning.
