A mediados de este mes de abril abre sus puertas al público el monasterio de Tsz Shan, un fastuoso templo budista levantado en la parte continental de #HongKong, cerca de la frontera con China. Erigido en el distrito de Tai Po, en una frondosa colina con espectaculares vistas al mar, está presidido por una descomunal estatua de bronce de Guanyin, el «Bodhisattva» («iluminado»). Con 76 metros, incluyendo el pedestal, dobla al Buda gigante de la isla de Lantau, también en Hong Kong.
