“Beautiful, iconic statue on Macau island”
Reviewed July 4, 2011

Before the days of Casinos and skyline hotels in Macau (5 years ago), the 20 meter tall, bronze Kun Lam (Goddess of Mercy) Statue was one of the must see attractions when visiting Macau. This statue and stop seems to be mentioned much less these days but it is still nice to see if you've some time in Macau.

As you drive out of the outer island ferry terminal, you will probably pass the Kun Lam Statue, to your left as you approach the Macau Tower and the second bridge that takes you to Tai Pa island and Cotai Strip attractions. You will probably see the statue as well prior to going into old Macau town centre for the heritage attractions near Senado Sq. and St. Paul's.

If time is limited, we recommend not including the Kun Lam Statue as an actual stop during your Macau day trip from Hong Kong or 1D/1N trip. Just look for it as you're driving into/out of Macau island. Its difficult to miss! However, if you've a couple days, then perhaps you can budget some time to stop and visit this very nice, iconic statue. There is an information centre there with some bits about Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism as well. This is worth a 15 minute stop, if you've the time.
