天壇大佛 Tian Tan Buddha

The Big Buddha (天壇大佛, Tian Tan Buddha) on Lantau island is such a lovely place to visit when your in HK. I went there when I was 5-6 years old and remember me and my sister asking our dad to carry us up the 1000 steps that lay before this huge Buddha.  This isn’t one of my photo’s as they are locked in a cupboard somewhere (if I find them I shall be sure to scan them in and upload them). This isn’t just a sculpture as there is a temple underneath the Buddha where you can pray and light your incense. I am definitely in love with this sculpture and the fact that it is of the Buddhist religion and it’s up high in the open gives a heavenly feel when your actually there and climbing all total 1000 steps to heaven 😀
