Statue At Cristo Rey - Dili, Timor-Leste

In the 1970s and 1980s, the Catholic Church became a place of refuge for the Timorese people. Approximately 70% of the population converted in that time. This monument, reminiscent of Christ of the Andes, overlooks Dili. It is a popular pilgrimage place for people throughout Timor-Leste.
