Tian Tan Buddha - one of the main attractions of Lantau Island. 268 steps will take you right to lotus-shape circling platform where Buddha sits.  

Construction of statue began in 1990 and was finished in 3 years. 34 meters tall Tian Tan Buddha weights 250 metric tons. Prior to 2007 seated Buddha was the tallest one in the world. It is said, that Buddha may be seen as far as from Macau Island. 

Raised right hand represents removal of affliction (cause of great suffering and distress).
