Hong Kong 01 07 Peter with Tian Tan Buddha Behind  [7 of 11]


Lantau is the largest outlying island in Hong Kong, almost twice the size of Hong Kong Island. The Po Lin (Precious Lotus) Monastery is located on western Lantau Island, set amid spectacular mountain scenery on the 520-metre-high Ngong Ping plateau. From the gate of the temple, you can see a big copper statue of Shakyamuni - Tian Tan Buddha, which is located on the top of the Muyushan Mountain. Pete slips into a meditation pose with the Big Buddha looking on from behind.
