The sculpture, which weighs about 250 tons, was built in China, with the contribution of believers from all over the world. The Buddha is shown sitting comfortably on the lotus leaves in the center of a three-story building.
From a religious point of view, Buddha Tian Tan symbolizes the harmonious interaction of the triangle of man, religion and nature.
The statue, completed in 1993, was erected near the Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island. Almost from the very first moment it has become a favorite tourist attraction, attracting tourists from around the world, mainly because of its impressive size and location.
The statue was moved to the island, broken into 102 parts. After being built here to a height of 34 meters, it has become one of the largest and most impressive of its kind.
The sight of the great Buddha statue is very impressive, but no less impressive is the view from it, when you look out over the huge forest surrounding the island.
To the statue arrive many tourists from all over the world, arriving by bus or cable car and after climbing 268 steps.
Entrance to the Buddha statue is free.
Entrance to the exhibition under the Buddha has a small fee.
