The "Big Buddha" at the Po Lin Monastery. Lantau Island, Hong Kong.

The first time I visited (about 6 years back) you could throw coins. Then I went back last year and it wasnt allowed anymore =(
The Monastery has really good veetarian food!

"If you dare, place in your hands a bamboo cylinder containing a mass of fortune sticks, and by shaking it carefully, one numbered stick will finally and tantalisingly fall to the ground. Match it with the relevant printed Fortune Paper and learn what the Fates have in store for you." -- What did it throw for you? :)
