The process of lifting the Buddha image combined with parts 1, 2 and 3 to be placed on the jewelled throne by using a steel tower crane started from 8:10 am on 26 January. The image was lifted to 26° as well as the 31 feet high position from the reclining position on 26 January and 90° as well as the 75.5 feet high position at 9 am on 29 January. The whole lifting-up process took 72 hours and 50 minutes.

The conveyance of the 90° lifted image onto the jewelled throne continued at 11:16 pm on 29 January –

  • It was getting close to the jewelled throne at 10:17 am on 30 January when the distance was 81 feet, and the process took 11 hours and one minute.
  • At 1:35 am on 31 January, it was lifted to 9 inches in height to be placed on the jewelled throne at 1:35 am on 31 January and successfully placed on the throne at 11:34 am on the same day. The process took about nine hours and 59 minutes.

Eight cranes from the steel tower successfully lifted the steel basket carrying the Buddha image combined with three parts and the image weighing 2,367.5 tonnes and placed the image on the jewelled throne. All the construction tasks and lifting tasks aim to enable the people to peacefully pay homage to the Buddha image, take meditation and view Tri Pitaka treatises preached by the Lord Buddha.
