Statue of Guan Yin, Macau
(3.2/5 based on 90 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.

  • Good for taking a few photos but you can probably just snap your photos from a bus window, heading to the Cotai strip casinos. There's a small museum under the statue, giving you information about its...  more »
  • The place is serene. Is worth visiting. You can see and take beautiful photos of the Kun Iam statue from different angles. 
  • Where this can be found from the Science Museum can come to worship Guanyin walking around good atmosphere.

  • 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.
