The man, whose name has not been released, suddenly jumped down around noon, after six hours standing on top of the Cot Pagoda, which is 40 meters high.
Witnesses say he used his belt to destroy parts of the roof.
“He even climbed onto a Buddha statue and wrapped his body around the statue,” said a witness.
Two fire trucks and around a dozen of rescue workers were mobilized to the scene after that.
After hours, he jumped down to the cushion and attempted to flee the scene right after that.
Rescuers caught him and escorted him to a police station for further investigation.
He puts his belt around the neck of a Buddha statue.
