Wait til you get here...and you think you have seen buddhas, not until you get here. The Monastery is fantastic, and serenely sublime. I loved all the buddhas, and the monks were wonderful, and nice to see them working, and praying, etc.

We loved it, 13000 Buddhas. Just make sure that you ask around for directions, as the sign are a bit hidden away, and you can waist time walking around unnecessary.

Even though under construction at the moment, worth a visit. Take a cabla car up, and time around lunch. Buy a meal ticket at the booth (HK$88 for 1 person - vegetarian). Nice experience. Well kept monastery next to Big Buddha!

If you don't like climbing steps then don't come here. But if you are willing to be a little active then this is truly worth it. Each Buddha on the way up is different so they take your mind off the climb. The temple at the top is ......you just have to see it. You thought there were a lot... More

Among infinite statues of buddas you'll definately find own Budda. There are Budda-alcoholic, Budda-Christ, red-lips Budda, Budda-Shiva, Budda-punk.... And even if you're atheist you'll also find your "god" - there are a lot of jumping monkeys!

Still worth visiting as the food is cheap and great, the temple and pagoda you can climb still carrying the holy feel. The gold encased body of the founding monk a tad spooky ... But the current abbot has seen fit to create around 300 new life size Buddha statues which seem to be competing in the silly statue competition.... More

Beautiful place to take pictures! Nice monastery just a train ride away from Hong Kong. There was a small shop to buy inscence and water - which is really needed with the hot temperatures.

If you are into buddhism and appreciate all things zen you'll love this place. Found the path with ease; the stairs aren't bad at all, just watch out for the monkeys. I loved it.

Somewhat further out (MTR Shatin) but once you have climbed the many steps (or even on the way) a rewarding view of many Buddhist sculpures. A temple is situated s few steps higher. Don't carry plastic bags (or similar) which could be grabbed off you by the local monkeys. Simple. But its place I've come back to time and again... More

Getting there is not very difficult but when you reach the metro station there are no clear signs ... you have to search for a close-bay mall where Ikea is and then you have it on your left. they place is curious with a ramp up full of Buddha statues, each one different from the other. The Temple itself is... More
