6. Qianshou Qianyan Guanyin Of Weishan
On the list of the world’s highest statues, it ranks sixth. This gilt bronze idol shows a bodhisattva who embodies all Buddhas’ compassion. The Ningshan County Government invested 260 million Yuan in the statue’s construction, which was completed in 2009 with the aid of local businesses and religious organizations. Guan Yin’s origin narrative is linked to Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, the embodiment of mercy, compassion, kindness, and love.
Bodhisattva refers to a person who has attained enlightenment and developed consciousness enough to leave their sufferings and become a Buddha, foregoing Nirvana in order to save all of God’s children.
