Kun Lam
Taking center stage along the outer harbor waterfront is this breath-taking statue of the Goddess of Mercy.

Kun Lam is the most popular goddess amongst Buddhists and plays a special role in protecting children, as well as bringing affluence.

Inaugurated by the Portuguese president Jorge Sampaio, the statue was designed by noted Portuguese artist Cristina Rocha Leiria.

The 48 polished bronze plates that make up the 20-meter tall statue were crafted in Nanjing, and bolted together on site.

The giant lotus flower pedestal is home to the Ecumenical Centre, providing information on China's major religions.

  4. I really enjoyed visiting all the Outer Islands from Hong Kong, they were all so different, the Ferries gave a wonderful service, and I took a different trip each day. I didn't like Macau quite so much, I am not a big city person.
