Tian Tan Buddha, Hong Kong

Planning to visit the Tian Tan Buddha? Check out our information below!


On Lantau Island, you will find the Tian Tan Buddha statue, or the ‘Big Buddha’. The statue stands at Po Lin Monastery and symbolises the harmonious relationship between man and nature, man and faith. Po Lin Monastery is an important Buddhist centre in Hong Kong. The temple complex that houses the Tian Tan Buddha is definitely worth exploring in its entirety.  

The Tian Tan Buddha is a 34-metre-high bronze Buddha statue, which rises some 500 metres above sea level and can be seen from far away. This makes the Buddha the largest seated Buddha statue in the world. To get to the Buddha, you have to climb a long staircase to the mountaintop, where the Buddha sits on a large lotus flower. It’s no easy feat, but once at the top, the climb is 100% worth it!  

Opening hours:

Tian Tan Buddha is open every day of the year, visiting from: 10:00 AM to 05:30 PM.
