Big Buddha, also known as Tian Tan Buddha, is the world's largest outdoor bronze Buddha. Located on the peak of the Muyu Mountain, it was unveiled in December 1993. The buddha is 34-meter-tall including the lotus base. It weighs 250 tons and was welded by 202 pieces of bronze. It is surrounded by The Offerings of the Six Devas, six smaller bronze statues representing deities on their knees, offering flowers, incense, lamp, ointment, fruit, and music to the Buddha.
