61. China: Tian Tan Buddha, Hong Kong

61. Tian Tan Buddha (Hong Kong), China
This magnet portrays the face and torso of the Tian Tan Buddha statue (天壇大佛) located in Lantau Island, Hong Kong. The statue, also known as The Big Buddha, is 34 meters tall (112 feet) and is made of bronze. Close to the statue is the Po Lin Monastery, one of Hong Kong’s most important Buddhist sanctums.
I got this magnet in a gift shop at Ngong Ping Village, a tourist corridor close to the Buddha statue.

Material: Resin
Size: 3.2 x 3.2 cm (1.3 x 1.3 in)
