Hong Kong Trip (16-20.07.2011), Day 3 Part I

I visited Giant Buddha at Lantau Island (大嶼山) in the morning.

In the Hong Kong's Ngong Ping new crystal cable car.

I purposely took this photo for giant buddha together with the tree branches from a different angle, thus it gives me some different feeling.

After walking for about 15 minutes, finally I reached The Wisdom Path (心经简林). It is a wooden version of the famous 260-word prayer 'Heart Sutra'. It is made up of 38 wooden rectangular beams or obelisks varying in height from 8-to-10 metres in the shape of a figure eight to represent infinity. Each obelisk bears a portion of the prayer, which is written in traditional Chinese characters.

I paid HKD35 to buy all those desserts to be my lunch including the famous Shanshui dau fu fa (山水豆腐花).
