photoblog image HK Day2: Tian Tan Buddha

HK Day2: Tian Tan Buddha

Lantau Island is the largest island in Hong Kong, located at the north-western part of Hong Kong. The top is also home to the Po Lin Monastery and the Tian Tan Buddha. A cable car runs from Tung Chun, over eight pylons and forms a 25 minute aerial ride. The Tian Tan Buddha, a large bronze statue of the Buddha Shakyamuni, was completed in 1993 and is located at the peak of Lantau Island. First we visited the Po Lin Monastery and were almost rooted on the spot by a stunning prayer pavilion. However, photography was not permitted inside. After a while, we made our way up the steps to the upper platform.

A lot of chains, seemingly keeping visitors out - but there are two up there. Buddha says - Hi Hong Kong!
Ayush Basu: No, everybody was welcome, Louis.

That does look steep Ayush, but it looks chained off.
Ayush Basu: We were all allowed to go up, Chad.
That is a very impressive statue Ayush

I like the wave smile

A wave from the lotus will have to suffice. Nice shot.
