Sanya Nanshan Cultural Tourism Zone Guanyin Cultural Park Plaza

Kwan-yin Statue stands erecting on the South China Sea, as if Kwan-yin Bodhisattva is riding on waves to approach. The entire figure was made of white alloy through enforced forging. The surface of white alloy is spread with special material – fluorin. The statue weights 2600 tons, resists maximum wind speed of 46m/second (or force 14 typhoon), with functions of anti-waves, typhoon resistance and anti-erosion. The statue rises 78 meters high, together with the pedestal, the height is 108 meters, is thus the highest of its kind in the world. If say Liberty Statue represents the western value of "freedom, peace and liberty", then the Nanshan Kwan-yin stands for oriental world’s spirit of "peace, wisdom and mercy". The holy statue is in trinity. To have a clear look at the entire image in three angles, you need to circle the entire statue. Nanshan Kwan-yin is the incarnation of Kwan-yin Bodhisattva and general reflection of Kwan-yin doctrine. The front side presents Kwan-yin holding sutra, symbolizing wisdom; the right side shows Kwan-yin holding prayer beads, symbolizing Kwan-yin’s compassion; the left side presents Kwan-yin holding lotus flower, symbolizing peace. In general, the statue embodies Kwan-yin’s purity and perfect penetration. Nanshan Kwan-yin is magnificent in look and is exclusive of all in the construction of statues in China and the world in general. The project lasted for 6 years, and the Grand Light Opening Consecration Ceremony was held on April 24, 2005. 108 illustrious monks from the mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao got together in Nanshan to unveil the statue and to release blessings to the world. It was a historical moment ever to be encountered.
