    Description
    The large Guanyin statue is 66.99-meter-high (more than 20 floors high) with 432 steps from the mountain foot. It is said that if you take all the 432 steps, you will have no annoyances in life and get good luck. Because 432 is 4 times of 108, 108 in Buddhism means all the annoyance in one’s daily life and 432 means all the annoyance in 4 seasons (the whole year). The new Guanyin statue is higher than the copper Guanyin statue in Chongyuan Temple (33 meters high). There is also a 9.9-meter high Guanyin status in the area below the steps and there are an additional ten 10-meter-high colored Guanyin statues in the Hou Guang Chang.

    景点介绍
    新建的观音像高达66.99米(相当于20多层的高楼),共432级台阶。据说登完这432级台阶就能全部烦恼获得好运。因为佛教中108代表平日的烦恼,432是108的4倍,代表四季的所有烦恼。这座观音像比重元寺的观音铜像高(重元寺观音铜像高33米)。阶梯下还有一座9.9米高的观音像,后广场有10尊十米高的彩色观音像。
