buddha sky

The Tian Tan Buddha is a large bronze statue of the Buddha located at Ngong Ping, Lantau Island in Hong Kong. Also known as the Big Buddha, as it is the world's tallest outdoor seated bronze Buddha.

 

The statue is named Tian Tan Buddha because its base is a model of the Altar of Heaven or Earthly Mount of Tian Tan, the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. It is one of the five large Buddha statues in China. The Buddha statue sits peacefully on a lotus throne on top of a three-platform altar. It is surrounded by eight smaller bronze statues representing gods or immortals. (Wikipedia)

    I had visited hong kong many many times especially during lunar new year season every year. However, this is the best photo i have ever seen. I had made many efforts and attempts to have this taken in lantao island in hong kong, either the weathers was too cloudy or a wrong angle.........Thanks for the photo......How i wish to have this printed and pasted on my wall at the hallway next to my buddha altar. May all santient beings cease all sorts of sufferings from this earth and realized enlightment of the ultimate bliss.......
