The enormous seated bronze buddha perched upon the hill top near the Po Lin Monastery. The statue was only completed in 1993, though the monastery itself has been around for nearly 100 years, though its religious work has largely given way for tourist fare.

The Giant Buddha statue is an excellent photo opportunity and one of Hong Kong's best sites. It's a must see for anyone taking a trip out to Lantau Island.
