About Kun Iam Statue in Macau

Behind the flashing neon lights and on the top of the casinos of Macau, facing the city stands the Kun Iam Statue. It is part of the Kun Iam Ecumenical Centre which is located on the artificial island which connects to the Av Dr Sun Yat Sen, Nape through the causeway which is 60 meter long. The total height of the island is about 32 meters. The Kun Iam statue which stands in the center looking at the Macau city symbolizes that it is there to protect the city and the people living there. The Kun Iam statue is about 20 meters high and it is made with about 50 bronze castings which weigh to 50 tons. The face of the sculpture was designed in such a way that it showcases the universality expressed through the concept “Ecumenic” which has no distinctive ethnicity.

The Inauguration and Design

The Kun Iam Ecumenical center was inaugurated in the year 1999 which also unveiled the statue of Kun Iam. The design and construction of the city center was under the directions of the Portuguese sculptor and architect Christina Rocha Leiria. There was huge support from UNESCO was well as the whole idea was to promote the mutual friendship and respect among individuals and civilizations. The statue of Kun Iam is the diety which embodies mercy, love and compassion. It is the figure that represents the message of rapprochement and solidarity between the people.

    • Trip to Macau

      The hotel in Macau was very wonderful and good, but free shuttle bus has dropped us another place near Westwood hotel which was very far from origin place. Hong Kong hotel Harbour plaza north point is good but rooms was very cozy not suitable for family. Plz don't give this type of room to family tourist. Overall it was good managed tour, tourist place, no issue. The pick up from hotel on 15.6.19 in the early morning was shared, why? Travel Triangle has make good tour, but the Hong Kong agency was less cooperative. Best memory in our trip is Disneyland, Macau hotel the parisian, hong Kong city etc

    • Trip to Macau

      The trip itinerary was good but the trip pre-arrangements were not satisfactory and support was minimal. Initially my trip was to Hong Kong but due to my PAR rejection the support was not up to mark for the alternatives or options. The flights were booked by my side as suggested by TT representative and I suffered a loss of 24K for flight cancellation. Another loss of 16K I suffered for Hong Kong and Macau hotel bookings cancellation but I did not get any visibility for the cancellation charges as per contractual terms. The invoicing transparency to customers is making me doubt where my money is being put in and how much refund did I get. A total loss of 40K I have suffered for which I have not got any consolations and did not get recorded anywhere. The flight from Delhi left too late at 3am in the morning which wasted the half day trip as I reached Bali late night. I am not sure whether I can recommend Travel Triangle to my peer group for planning any holidays. Hoping management of TT pays some heed to my testimonial.

    • Trip to Macau

      We booked a package tour of hong kong and macau for 5 days with Travel triange/Timeless trips. We had booked our own flight and had let TT handle ground transportation and hotel booking. It was a smooth experience. The local agency handling transport is very efficient particularly in HK Mr Sunny is 9/10 on time and courteous. Couple of things for TT and Mr Sunny as feedback. Macau -> HK ferry, they charged baggage fees for checkedin luggage @25$/piece. This was not known earlier. For Mr Sunny - On the HK evening tour day, we had asked to be dropped at the ladies market but the driver dropped us at night market and said ladies market is a short walk from there whereas it is absolutely not the case. This was horrible. Rest was smooth. Sheraton at Macau was very good. We recommend it . HBPlaza 8 degrees is also good though space is small but thats true of all hotels in HK. The location has small shops so its convenient for buying stuff for kids etc. BTW we had taken 2 days for Disney and Ocean park tours. Both were good.

      We traveled to Honkong Macau for a 6 day trip in April 2019 and it was a well arranged trip. Before departure, multiple times we were contacted by travel triangle team, who explained the itenary to us for clarity. The quote was also very competitive. before departure, a whattsapp group was created to support 24x7 and even they enquired requlary during our Honkong stay. I had previously also booked Singapore and Thailad through different operators, but Travel triangle is the the most professional team.They have a huge team to assist you at different stages. I strongly recommend them and appreciate their professional service.

      Thanks Traveltriangle for planning a nice trip for my brother. Hotels and other services provided were also very good. Although last minute cancellation for Macau Beach tour/buggy ride without any proper justification was quite disappointing, alternative was also provided after doing follow-up. The itinerary which was cancelled costed more and a less expensive ones were offered against cancellation.

      The cab driver's behaviour was rude during the first day visit at Hong Kong. Overall trip was good with luxurious hotels but difficult for vegetarians to find an Indian restaurant esp in Macau. Return transfer from Hong Kong hotel to Hong Kong Airport terminal 1 should be included in the itenary.

    • Trip to Macau

      The trip was very hectic and best done without the services of a travel agent. The city is very well connected with metro and trams and you need not at all get any agent. Even the travel guide provided there was not of any help. He wouldn’t share any history of the place neither would he/she tell us other significant locations to visit. We googled half of the places ourselves and went there. The guide would always be in a hurry to end the trip. Even the peak tram ticket is to go down from the peak tower and the worst part is the tram goes down in reverse direction and you cannot see anything. The travel agent wasted a whole day for us in the last day as we were made to catch the earliest ferry from Macau. And we were stuck at the ferry port till 3pm as they wouldn’t allow us into the airport. Also the hotel at Macau was under renovation, the agent never told us that. Though it didn’t spoil our stay. But still it would have been good to know. All the places we visited ourselves and didn’t have the guide rushing us.
