The Tian Tan Buddha ( the Giant Buddha) is seated on the hilltop up a flight of 268 steps at Po Lin monestary on Lantau Island. The Buddha which built by the Chinese Space Agency and opened officially in 1989, is surrounded by a ring of Bodhisatvas offering various gifts to the Buddha. This is the world's largest outdoor, seated, bronze Buddha statue (26m high and weighing 202 tons).
