The towering Tian Tan statue of Buddha sits 111 feet high and can be reached after only after hiking up 268 steps. The bronze Buddha was positioned to face north toward Mainland China, looking over the people and offering blessings from its massive, raised right hand. Below the statue are three floors: The Hall of Universe, The Hall of Benevolent Merit, and The Hall of Remembrance. It is here that visitors can pay to leave an offering with the alleged cremated remains of Gautama Buddha, the actual founder of Buddhism
