Tian Tai Buddha

The 17. July 2015, I went to Tung Chau to take the cable cars up to experience Tian Tin Buddha, also known as ”Big Buddha.“ 

The Tian Tin Buddha is a large bronze statue of a Sakyamuni Buddha completed in 1993, and located at Ngong Ping, Lantau Island, in Hong Kong. The statue symbolises the harmonious relationship between man and nature, people and faith. It is a major centre of Buddhism in Hong Kong and a quite popular tourist attraction. 

My family and I have visited the Tian Tin Buddha twice before, and it has somewhat become a tradition for us to visit this large bronze statue when we’ve been in Hong Kong this year was no excuse. 

You have to take the cable cars when you visit Big Buddha, since he is sitting on a mountain, but the experience is worth everything, and the view is amazing, you wouldn’t miss this. I recommend you to visit this beautiful place if you are going to visit Hong Kong someday.
