Guan Yin Statue of Macau
This is might not the most popular attractions in Macau but definitely worth a mention. This is the statue of Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy in Taoism and it is located near the Cultural Center of Macau and also near the Macau Harbour.
The statue is beautifully clad with bronze and weight of an astounding 50 tons. It is 65 feet (20m) in height.
My tour guide told me that if you look carefully at the features at this beautiful Guan Yin, it has the resemblance of Virgin Mary. The interpretation works well with Macao of multi-ethnics and multi cultures.
It is believed that when this statue is built, Macau has become more prosperous, peaceful and economically better. If you are near the Macau harbour or Macau Cultural Center, you can visit the statue of Guan Yin for blessing.
