The Big Buddha, also known as Tian Tan Buddha, is a major Buddhist attraction in Hong Kong. Besides that it is the largest bronze outdoor sitting Buddha statue in the world,  it is also one of the five large Buddha statues in China.

The name of Tian Tan Buddha came from the Tian Tan Temple in Beijing. The design of Tian Tan Buddha is highly referencing Beijing Tian Tan Temple.

The Buddha statue faces north and sightly east, at the same time which is the direction towards Hong Kong and Beijing.
