Tian Tan Buddha, Hong Kong

Tian Tan Buddha is also known as The Big Buddha; the statue was completed in 1993 and located at Ngong Ping (near the Po Lin Monastery), Lantau Island in Hong Kong. It symbolises the harmonious relationship between man and nature, people and religion. Standing 34 meters tall, its the 2nd largest sitting Buddha statues in the world  (it doesnt come close to the 1st on the list - The Great Buddha Of Thailand is staggering 92m high..!)
As Manyee/memymanyee wrote on the card: some people say, since this Buddha was built there are fewer typhons in Hong Kong. May that good vibe continue! :))
