Photographer's Note

The picture was taken at Po Lin MonasteryrnrnThe following introduction was downloaded from : Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery rnrnThe remote Po Lin Monastery, hidden away by lush mountains, became a popular attraction when the extraordinary Tian Tan Buddha statue (informally known as the Big Buddha) was erected in 1993. Sitting 34 metres high and facing north to look over the Chinese people, this majestic bronze Buddha draws pilgrims from all over Asia.rnrnThe eyes, lips, incline of the head and right hand, which is raised to deliver a blessing to all, combine to bring a humbling depth of character and dignity to the massive Buddha, which took 12 years to complete. Climb the 268 steps for a closer look at this remarkable statue, and to enjoy the sweeping mountain and sea views that can be seen from its base.rnrnOpposite the statue, the Po Lin Monastery is one of Hong Kong¡¦s most important Buddhist sanctums and has been dubbed ¡¥the Buddhist World in the South¡¦. Home to many a devout monk, this monastery is rich with colourful manifestations of Buddhist iconography and its pleasant garden is alive with birdsong and flowery scents. You can also enjoy a meal at its popular vegetarian restaurant.
