We could only see the state from a distance as the complex was closed for works being carried out. The statue is none the less magnificent to view, even if from a distance. I would like to return when works are completed.

…as the information (including lots of photos and art work) about its construction is pretty interesting. There is also a fair amount of unrelated art and even some free literature relating to the beliefs centred in Kun Lam, which we didn’t take but were of very high quality to be free! As for the statue itself, its imposing size but gentle design gives a mixed impression. However it is no doubt an important part of the seafront and Macau’s history.

The seaside statue of Kun Iam adds color to Macau waterfront. The huge golden Kun Iam stepping on lotus is a popular attraction for tour groups. A visit at night is more interesting.

The Kun Iam Statue and Ecumenical Centre (free entry) is located along Ave. Dr. Sun Yat-Sen in the N.A.P.E. area of Macau. You can see the statue at all hours of the day. The Centre is open from 10am to 6pm daily (closed on Fridays).

What you see here is a 20 metre tall figure of Kun Iam (Goddess of Mercy) situated atop the Ecumenical Centre. This much revered figure is gold in colour, graceful with a loving and caring appearance. The statue is located at the end of a 60 metre causeway in the harbour facing the Macau Peninsula.

You can take good photos of the Kun Iam Statue during the day when the sun is at your back. At night the statue is lit up with floodlights and is nice to see as well.

The Ecumenical Centre can be an interesting place to visit if you have time and interest in local religions and philosophies of Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism as well as more specifically about Kun Iam, all of which is broadly covered within the two floors of the Centre.

A gorgeous bronze lady queen standing on a dome-shaped lotus. Her name? Kun Iam, same status as the goddess Guan Yin or Kwan Yin. These deities are honored as the Buddhist Goddess of Love, Mercy and Compassion. She is 20 metres tall (65 feet), weighing 50 tons and located on a small island looking at the river Yangtze (Yellow River). Remember the Portuguese were here, colonized Macau and found here A-MA-GAU, the Temple of AMA. So they named this place MACAU. The Portuguese were involved with the Kun Iam Statue, a design by thePortuguese architect and sculptor Cristina Rocha Leiria, with the support of UNESCO,
Walk along the Avenida Sun Yat to visit Kun Iam!

Just a bronze of Guan Yin Statue, 20 metres in heights with dome shaped lotus base, 7 metres high and is composed of 16 petals. Since you are there might as well take a picture of it.

An impressive statue in a lovely location, and in peaceful surroundings. Looks good in the sunshine, and when floodlit at night.

It is relatively recent in terms of additions to the Macau landmarks since it was a parting gift from the Portuguese so in 1999 just before Macau was "given back " to China the Portuguese authorities have erected this statue of Guan Yin. So this is why is interesting:
- it is on the sea shore- as the majority of the Guan Yin statues are facing the sea - this one is not facing the sea but is facing inland - it was built like this as was recommended by a master in Feng Shui (again part of the chinese culture).
- it has a small shop / gift shop underneath you can get some memorabilia.
- when we were there were not too many people around - compared to other landmarks of Macau, but I guess is depending on the day.
- also you can get out to the sea side - so you can enjoy the breeze and the sea.
- visiting is free of charge - so you can just watch from close by.
When in Macau and you have the time check it out.

I came across this unexpectedly, but it's very impressive. The scale and siting of the statue is impressive and is worth visiting if you are down near the waterfront area. This was also a good gathering place to watch the New Year fireworks. Like many things in Macau, it was another amazing sight.

Located within walking distance from Fisherman's Wharf, this place is surprisingly void of crowd when we went there. Just a statue of Kuan Yin erected at the sea shore. What you see from the photo is all about it. Nothing more. At the base of the statue, you will see on display the process of building the status and miniature sized statues.
