The statue of Goddess of Mercy, Kun Iam was designed by Portuguese artist Cristina Rocha Leiria.
The goddess Kun Iam is a Buddhist deity of mercy. This 20 meter high bronze statue is built on top of a lotus flower shaped dome which is home to the ecumenical center. Built on a man-made island, access to the statue is via a narrow causeway. The ecumical center provides information on the local religions/philosophies of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianis.
