Seated on a lotus throne, one open palm in his lap and one arm raised, Tian Tan Buddha ("Big Buddha") appears gracious, peaceful, and wise. The 110-foot bronze statue, completed in 1993, is a symbol of harmony between people, nature, and religion.

Visitors who climb the 268 steps that lead up to the monument can meditate beside Big Buddha, who gazes north, unlike all other south-facing Buddha statues. Beneath the altar are three floors open to tourists: The Hall of Universe, The Hall of Benevolent Merit, and The Hall of Remembrance.
