Tian Tan Buddha Hong Kong

The Big Buddha Hong Kong statue, Tian Tan Buddha, is a major crowd-puller for tourists from all over the world, be it a pilgrim or any other holidaymaker. This statue of Buddha Shakyamuni is made of bronze and 34 meters tall. The statue weighs nearly 250 metric tons. It is located on Ngong Ping Lantau Island, and is connected to the mainland via Big Buddha Hong Kong cable cars which are the best means of transport to reach this religious place. The construction of the statue started in 1990 and it was completed in the year 1993, and has since been a major attraction. Tian Tan Buddha Hong Kong is second largest outdoor sitting Buddha statue in the world, with the first one being in Taiwan. There are six smaller statues of Buddha on the same platform as the Big Buddha statue Hong Kong, facing it. These are known as the “The Offering of the Six Devas”. These smaller statues are depicted as offering various items such as flowers, incense, fruits, ointment, lamps or music. Each of these offerings are said to be a symbol of a virtue such as wisdom, patience, morality, meditation, charity and zeal.

The most important and famous landmarks inside the Big Buddha Park are the Bodhi Path and the Ngong Ping Piazza. The Bodhi Path will lead you up a steep staircase, which might be a tad too difficult to climb in a hurry, so make sure to take your time doing it. Once on the platform, you can see clear views of the beautiful Lantau Island, which is an enjoyable sight. It is one of the most important places of pilgrimage for Buddhists, and for tourists, it’s a place of wonder and beautiful views. Make sure to visit it when in Hong Kong.
