Hong Kong: Tian Tan Buddha

Today I got five postcards: four from Hong Kong and one from Japan.

One of the cards from Hong Kong shows the Tian Tan Buddha on Lantau Island. The also called Big Buddha is with 34m the biggest detached Buddha Statue in sitting posture of the World. The Tian Tan Buddha is located close to the Po Lin Monastery. The Tian Tan Buddha can be reached by bus, by the Ngong Ping 360 gondola cable car or by climbing 268 steps.

With a matching stamp:
Weather Phenomena (two from set of six) (issued 27-03-2014)
with a special postmark from the Granville Road Post Office

Thank You very much Zinfandel!
