A scenic spot in Beijing plans to repair a 6-meter-high Buddhist statue, after tourists engraved their names and good luck wishes.

The bronze statue at Qianling Mountain in Fengtai district was defaced by the tourists who wrote phrases requesting a happy life and good luck, the Beijing News reported.

A worker at the scenic spot said that the statue will be repaired but at a high cost, the paper said.

A worker surnamed Yu said that even though he and other workers had tried to stop the tourists from engraving their wishes on the statue many tourists waited until the workers were absent before defacing it.
