Statue of Guan Yin, Macau
(3.3/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Emerging from a lotus-shaped dome housing a small ecumenical center, Statue of Guan Yin is dedicated to the Buddhist goddess of mercy. The bronze statue glimmers in the sunlight unsheltered, rising to a height of 20 m (65 ft) at the edge of the harbor, oddly facing away from the sea, unlike other statues dedicated to Kun Iam. Inside the lotus dome is a small visitor center, where you can read up on Buddhism and take a few pamphlets home.

  • Statue of Kun Iam The seaside is beautiful, but pressure to close the premises Friday would not have to go inside the base, but a photo shoot outside instead.

  • 很可惜觀音像這個景點附近旅遊配套設施不足,好像沒有什麼好吃的,沒有什麼商店或紀念品之類,就是有一間小小的展覽館在裡面。夏天來這裡真的會太熱,因為沒有什麼樹蔭或海邊餐廳。但勝在有點海風,黃昏時份來還算可以,看看澳門的海灣。 
  • Excellent photo taking of the statue and the surrounding seaview. There is a duplicate adult size statue at the basement

  • On its own nothing tremendously special and there's nothing much here except a quick photo op but this statute nicely encapsulated the East-West mix that is Macau: it's a very unique representation of the Goddess of Mercy the flowing robes and the way her hands are positioned reminds one almost of Catholic representations of the Virgin Mary! This incongruity alone might make it worth a photo.
  • Beautiful view. You can get more information guan yin statue on beneath. & you aldo can take a picture with small statue
  • Best to go in the early morning or late afternoon for a quick visit. I think that there is nothing too special in particular, just that some photos taking for the scenery and the statue of Guan Yin.
  • I love they support art and they have different sculptures all over Macau..... Walking around could be very entertaining and educational.
  • Like others have said, nothing much to do but a photo opportunity. Did learn that most statues face the sea whereas this one faces the land.
