Kun Iam Statue Tours

Behind all the flashing neon lights and over-the-top extravagance of Macau’s casino scene and the dominant Portuguese influence is a subtle yet rich Buddhist heritage. This religious heritage is evident in the various monuments to Kun Iam, Goddess of Mercy, located throughout the area. Once such monument is the Kun Iam Statue, notable as being one of the only statues on the planet where the goddess faces inland rather than toward the sea.

Perched atop a lotus-shaped dome, the bronze likeness of Kun Iam stands 66 feet (20 meters) tall. The dome beneath her feet houses the Kun Iam Ecumenical Centre, a small museum where visitors can read up on Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism.

Practical Info

The Kun Iam Statue is located about a 15-minute walk from the MGM Grand along the waterfront separating Macau City from the Cotai Strip. Entrance is free.
