Po Lin Monastery is a Buddhist monastery sitting in the lap of Ngong Ping at Lantau Island. The highlight of the monastery is the 3 Buddha statues in its premise, representing the past, present and future lives. The famous Tian Tan Buddha statue is an extension of Po Lin Monastery.
‘Po Lin Monastery’ means ‘Precious Lotus’ and is a symbolic representation of purity. Founded in 1906, it is regarded as the centrepiece of Buddhism in the south. The small thatched hut temple is now transformed into one of the most important Buddhist centres in Hong Kong. This sacred landmark has an enchanting hall, restaurants, lush gardens and the impeccable Tian Tan Buddha sculpture that was constructed in 1993.
