After traversing the subway and making our way through a convoluted path to get there (watch out for fake Monks on the way - they'll take your money for a "blessing"), you'll begin a climb up hundreds of stairs, accompanied by many golden Buddhas. It's interesting to see how they're so different from each other, and there are different areas... More

WOW! Breathtaking and so peaceful. Couldn't help but look in awe. So colourful, but not in a tacky way.

I love going to this temple. A little off the beaten path and away from the crowds of the ig Buddha. 450 steps to reach the top but well worth it because you have all the many versions of Buddha to look at along the way. There are a few BIG Buddhas at the top and and gift shop. I... More

I think this is a much better site than the Big Buddha. Lots of steps on the way up however the stairs are lined with large Buddhas. It's also in a slightly more interesting area than the Big Buddha with a lot to do before or after your visit. There's Che Kung temple and old "village" area around Sha Tin... More

Go there only if you are very fit and want to visit a "different" kind of Buddhist Temple. The temple is a 15 minute walk from the MTR. It is a steep climb up and is not for the aged or if you are carrying kids or baggage. The entire route is lined with statues of Buddhist monks of various... More

The Buddha's are on the path on the way up to the top. You might need there help when you are on your way up the steep climb. The Buddha's themselves are not that impressive, but it's worth going to the top and seeing the monastery and the views.

So, I did this the day before my travel partner arrived. I took the metro out here then walked up the hill checked it out and came back down. If you are a person that likes to pose for photos with odd things, this is definitely for you think of it like a wax museum but only with budhas not... More

This was a fun and very different experience. Finding the Monastery may be a bit of a challenge because there are no "official" tourists signs. However, it's easy to get to from Shatin MTR station when you watch this video that someone has kindly uploaded to YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8kkKpHxJpg There are plenty of photo opportunities, but be prepared to walk up...

The road and climb lies on the back side of the IKA building in Pai Tau..The start of the climb to the Monastery has no signs..Its a easy walk up hill with statues of Buddha on both side..At the Monastery there is a simple Veg restaurant which is now open on all days
