Photographer's Note

After a 5.7km cable car ride from Tung Chung Cable Car Terminal located on Hong Kong Island I am now exploring Ngong Ping Village located on Lantau Island. Lots of tourists shops, restaurants and of course the Big Buddha Statue which was the reason for our visit.


"Tian Tan Buddha statue (informally known as the Big Buddha) was erected in 1993. Sitting 34 metres high and facing north to look over the Chinese people, this majestic bronze Buddha draws pilgrims from all over Asia.

The eyes, lips, incline of the head and right hand, which is raised to deliver a blessing to all, combine to bring a humbling depth of character and dignity to the massive Buddha, which took 12 years to complete. Climb the 268 steps for a closer look at this remarkable statue, and to enjoy the sweeping mountain and sea views that can be seen from its base" Previous text from the following website: www.discoverhongkong.com/us/see-do/culture-heritage/chine...
