The Bronze Buddha Statue is the fifty-third treasure that can be found in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
The Bronze Buddha Statue is found in Chapter 16 - Where Am I?. The second of three treasures found in this calm chapter is in a rather obscure place. When you run into the kids playing soccer, you'll know you're in the right area. Moving forward, those kids are on your left, but you'll actually want to go to the right. Move across to the other side of the street and climb the ladder you find there. Then, vault over the green wall on your left, and search the grassy area along the building on your right. Here, you'll run into this treasure.
