My First encounter with the Buddha





Breath taking panorama with the divine presence of Buddha .The giant Tian Tan Buddha statue was covered with mist.
Lantau Island in Hong Kong is a must visit place for a serene and spiritual experience.
This majestic statue symbolizes the stability of Hong Kong, prosperity of China and peace on earth.

Below the Big Buddha statue , there is Po Lin monastery main temple.
Tian Tan Buddha, a giant Buddha statue completed in 1993, is an extension of the monastery.


Vegetarian food is available near the temple. But if you are not a big fan of traditional Cantonese delicacies, it is better to avoid eating out here.

Visiting the temple was an intriguing experience . The main temple houses three bronze statues of the Buddha – representing his past, present and future lives – as well as many Buddhist scriptures.
Nature was at it's best with heavy showers .What more can one ask for?

The place displayed a unique tranquility as the majestic Buddha statue slowly got covered by thick mist . It was one of my life's memorable moments.
