The Hong San Tang Temple…

or Sanggar Agung temple in Surabaya.

A majestic statue of the Goddess Kwan Im.

Closing up the temple for the night,

a temple official saw a beautiful woman

wearing long white robes walking on the ocean …

believed to be the Goddess Kwan Im herself..

so they build an 18 meter statue of her at the site,

flanked by other heavenly deities and dragons.
