Structure was gorgeous! If your lucky you will hear the monks chanting while you are there. If you are seeing the Big Buddha this is right next door and the architecture is stunning.

Incredible, incredible, incredible. The way the statues are lined up to ascend to the sky, the detail of expression on each statue, is absolutely insane. I could have spent all day staring at each statue, all with different faces and poses, and all eerily staring back at me. And it's all for free! I highly recommend it, it's a little... More

This monastary in Shatin is easily acessible. Take MTR East Rail and get off at the Shatin Station Exit B. Go along the pavement on your left. You can either take the route through the Pai Tau Village, or go a bit further to a route behind the Hong Kong Government Office Building. The latter route is the main route... More

Take the East rail line to Shatin and look for the IKEA store. To the left is a gate pointing towards the temple. Steep walk up the hill but just Buddha's all the way

This place is located in the sha tin area near a mtr station. It's worth the visit, esp if you are staying in the Kowloon area. Only short train ride away. Loads of bhudda's to admire along the way up a step path. Nice view of the city too. Take good walking shoes. Do ask at the entrance, as there... More

This is a less advertised Temple and for that reason is far more interesting than most. An amazing number of buddhas, all unique, with stunning views across to Lion Rock Mountain and over Sha Tin. a great place to bring visitors to Hong Kong to show them the real use of a temple.

This is a little gem of a place that you can reach quite easily from the Sha Tin MTR station. There were 500 statutes each different from the other along the path leading to the top of the hill. The temple at the top was quite beautiful and really worth the trip.

It's a long stroll up a hill to the main monastery with thousands of Buddhas of every imaginable type along the trail - it was so unique and odd that it is a must do.
