Kargah Buddha is located approximately at: 35° 54′ 38.30″ N 74° 15′ 43.20″ E. You should be able to spot it if you are around there. Google Maps is not high-res enough to be able to see it in the satellite view, I guess that’s also due to the angle of the carved Buddha image, […]

If I follow you correctly, you entered the EU with two litres of spirits. Enforcement might be complicated by your complex bag checking wizardry but your legal position seems clear to me: You have crossed an external border once, there is no reason for any limit to be “reset”.
