The Bronze Buddha Statue on Lantau Island

The idea of a Buddha statue on Lantau Island, conceived by the head monk in the monastery to be the tallest outdoor Buddha statue in the world, was first proposed in 1974, but in 1980, the original designer dropped out. In 1983 the project was finally started, and a meticulous series of models and development trials took place until the final statue was completed and opened to the public in December 1993. Peter P.K.
