Beautiful temple not far from Shatin metro station and definitely a must if your visiting Hong Kong and enjoy culture and a little piece and quiet after the busy city. It can be tricky to find as they are not allowed to put up signs as don't want the place overrun with tourists. The entrance to the temple is a... More

You can get to the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery using the MTR and then walk about 10 minutes to the temple. It's quite nice and if you have some extra time, go check it out!

Good place to visit...it is in Sha tin...very well connected from MTR. Get down and walk for around 400 mtrs and you will be at the gate of this Monastery. There are more then 10k Buddhas each sitting in different posture and different from another by face as well. It's quite steep so for aged its a tough exercise. There... More

Actually 2007 for brother's wedding. I needed something spiritual growth at the time and had very limited time in Hong Kong so my brother decided to take our family there. The hike up at first was hard since we are not fit people but once up there it was breathtaking. Seeing the shrines and statues was amazing. Felt centered after... More

We didn't plan ahead to visit this place and decided to do so on the same morning based on TripAdvisor reviews and it turned to be one of the best days we had. The walk was very pleasant, not difficult ( though we did count the steps and got the result of around 470 for the first level and about... More

Wasn't easy to find the entrance to the temple. Like most first visitors, we found the Po Fu Shan temple/cemetery (or crematory) first. The path to the Ten Thousand Buddha Temple is actually the path on the right hand side of the green fence separating PFS (left hand side is the car park entrance to PFS). If you look carefully...

Luckily, the security lady (guarding an empty field?!) saw us take the wrong path and guided us to the correct one. The Buddhas are cool, each being different. The snack shop / restaurant at the top serves decent food, but it is one guy trying to serve everyone, so be prepared for a leisurely lunch. There are wild monkeys that... More
