  Photographs of the same title

Same as the photograph by Felix Beato (1825-1904?) preserved at the Yokohama Archives of History. Beato is said to have visited Kamakura in 1864 and again in 1868. The photograph shows three bronze lotus petals and the monument with the inscription "Donated Stone Pavement" erected in 1789. Both remain today. The Great Buddha is an object of worship and climbing upon it is prohibited today.
