We wanted to explore less visited attractions in HK and chose to find our way to the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery. The connectivity in HK is excellent. From East TsimShaTsui we went by MTR to ShaTin. The gate to the monastery is a 5 min walk from the MTR station (right behind IKEA). It is a must watch attraction. There... More

we visited on a very misty day and enjoyed visiting the Buddha, the monastery and the walk out to the wisdom path. Buy picnic supplies at the local supermarket when you get off the ferry or buy lunch at the monastery

My wife and I visited the 10000 Buddha monastery in April 2015. We have been to Hong Kong a few times but had not made it out here before. It is well worth making the trip. Getting there Head out to Sha Tin MTR station. About 45 mins from Central. It is a 10 minute walk from the MTR to... More

A steep climb (apparently 431 steps but felt more than that!) to the top along a path lined with Buddhas. At the top it is serene, with great views and more statues and temple. Something special after the consumerism of HK

Get ready to wear comfortable shoes, the entrance is slightly hidden but I prefer it that way! The walk up is lovely and the different statues really adds to the walk up! Up top is a lovely view of Sha Tin...overall a great place to visit!

Very large, very ornate, beautiful. 3 huge gold covered Buddhas as well as 10,000+ Budha tiles. We were told that everything which was gold colored is actual gold ;I assume gold covered, not solid gold. None the less, a lot of money invested in that place. Worth seeing as part of the Big Budha tour.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. Great to escape the crowd of HK and just take a taxi to this place (or the subway which also stops nearby). The location is very special and the walk up there is great. There are hundreds of golden (colored) Buddhas at each site. The Monastery itself is a beautiful place.... More

It is located near Shatin village. More than 10000 statues showing different postures of Buddha, have been erected on both sides of the path leading to the Monastery. The Monastery on the top is very good. Stairs leading to the Monastery are very steep. People with joint pain should think twice before visiting this place. One can have a distant... More

So far the biggest Buddhist temple I've visited. It is very peaceful and very impressive. It is on the top of a mountain so we got there on cable car which was very nice.

Easily accessed via the MTR and then a short 5 minute walk to the start of the stairway to the monestry. Stairway can feel very long if it's a hot day, but should take no more than 10-15 minutes to get to the top. Best done first thing in the morning when it is cooler.
