Today marks the first time since I started the Memphis scavenger hunt that I’ve had to turn to you, my awesome readers, for directions. I couldn’t remember what street the Hickory Hill Buddha was on.
As it turns out, it’s on Mendenhall, about a mile and a half south of I-240. It’s impossible to miss – it rises, gigantic, from a front yard on the corner. He’s huge, and smiling, and at least 10 feet tall. He’s facing towards a two-story house, surrounded by spotlights.
It’s been attracting a lot of drive-by gawking since it was put on the lawn a few years ago.
