Kun Iam Statue , Macau Overview

The beautiful and unexplored Kuan Iam Statue stands tall between the Macau and Taipa regions along Avenida Dr Sun Yat – Sen in Macau. Built on 21st March 1997 by the Portuguese Government and designed by Cristina Rocha Leiria, it is an interesting 32 metres tall bronze statue of Guanyin, which is the Chinese translation of Bodhisattva, representing the God of Compassion, Mercy and Kindness.

Kuan Iam Statue is an example of the religious and historical beliefs of people of Macau, standing tall since years. Along with the height, it is around 50 tons heavy and shines brightly during the sunny days due to the golden and bronze shade. The scale and sitting of the statue on the lotus seat are highly appreciated along with the base which displays the process of building it. Along with the Ecumenical Centre and gift shop, the location on the seashore provides a peaceful aura to the place.
