Nanshan Buddhist Culture Park

Nanshan Buddhist Culture Park, facing Chinese South Sea, situated 40 miles west of Sanya with an area of 5,000 hectares, was developed as a major tourist attraction in the mid-1990s. T he park has some of the island’s most interesting Buddhist temples including the huge multi-tiered Nanshan Temple in the centerpiece of the park and the Guanshi Yin Temple near the entrance, which is famous for its 4-metre Tibetan eight-armed altarpiece being made of solid gold, jade, diamonds, pearl, red coral and turquoise.

Across the causeway from the park’s beachfront, there is a small man-made island, which is dominated by a 108-metre statue of Guanshi Yin, Buddhist goddess of mercy and infinite compassion. As one of the world’s largest statue of Buddha, the statue enshrined on April 24th, 2005, one hundred and eight monks attended the Revealing Ceremony. The statue’s three faces were looking at the Chinese mainland, Taiwan and the rest of the world respectively—which suggested that the goddess, would bestow her blessings and protection not only on China but on the rest of the world too.
