Wisdom Path


Description
An outdoor wooden replica of the centuries-old Heart Sutra, one of the world's best known Buddhist sutras or prayers, has been erected near the Giant Buddha on Lantau Island.

The island's latest tourist attraction called the Wisdom Path is a wooden version of this famous 260-word prayer. It is made up of 38 wooden rectangular beams or obelisks varying in height from 8-to-10 metres in the shape of a figure eight to represent infinity. Each obelisk bears a portion of the prayer, which is written in traditional Chinese characters.

Address
At the foot of Lantau Peak near Ngong Ping of Lantau Island
