"Kun Iam Statue" Kun Lam Statue Tip by Ewingjr98

Kun Lam Statue, Macao: 9 reviews and 11 photos

Kun Iam Statue, dedicated to the Goddess of Mercy, sits on a small island near the newer parts of Macau. Bot to be confused with Kun Iam Temple, this statue and shrine is a very modern monolith on the edge of new Macau. Visitors can reach the statue temple across a long white bridge. On top of the main building is a huge, graceful statue of Kun Iam. Unfortunately for us, the shrine closes around 4 or 5pm, so we could not even cross the bridge. Instead we sat at an outdoor table at a bar on the corner across the street and admired the architecture...

This seems to be another of Macau's contrived tourist attractions -- along with Macau Tower -- designed to get visitors to the new parts of the city. Not really worth the visit.

Address: Avenida Marginal da Baia Nova
Directions: at the end of Dr. Carlos d'Assumpcao Park in the new, fill area of Macau.
