Lantau Island, Hong Kong

This is the world's largest seated outdoor bronze Buddha, 34 metres high, sitting on a lotus base, 268 steps above Po Lin Monastery...well, according to some info I came across, it HAS been the largest prior to 2007...so it means its not anymore....sometimes you just really dont know whom to trust :)


It is located on Ngong Ping, on the Lantau Island in Hong Kong. It is also known as the Tian Tan Buddha. It symbolizes the harmonious relationship between man and nature, people and religion. It is a major center of Buddhism in Hong Kong... and of course, a popular tourist attraction.
