As for the title of it, it's ten thousand buddhas and you will see those stairs and you will think it's also a ten thousand steps though but as you go up each and every step you will amaze by each of the different looks of the buddhas very wonderful and their faces are all different as you reach at...

There are a lot of stairs but the many golden statues of varying character and expression keep you entertained on the way up. The terrace at the top holds some absolutely glorious buddhist statues and some fantastic views. Beware the monkeys!!! - They come in from the trees from time to time to steal the offerings made at the temple... More

This wasn't in the top 10 sights but should be. Fascinating place and easy to get to on the MTR/train (light blue line). Go through the bus station and you'll see IKEA on the opposite corner. Turn left towards white arch and you'll pick up a little sign for 10000 Buddhas. 400 steps so not for wheelchairs or buggies. Cold... More

Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery (Man Fat Sze) is a little off the beaten path but accessible by MTR. Like many sites in Hong Kong there is a slight hike involved but this place is awesome. There is also a nice vegetarian restaurant at the top as well. Bring water, face towel and your energy to hike up quite a few... More

We took MTR to Sha Tin and found it following instructions from previous reviews. The walk up is steep and hot but there are stairs (easier than steep hill) and lots of seats along way to have a break. The 10,000 Buddhas are not those that line the path, but rather it's the 12,800 Buddhas that are in the temple.... More

Apart from the stairs, in my opinion, something you should do if you can fit it in. A work out for the legs, but worth it. The view at the top when you get there is amazing. I will visit again when I go back to HK!

Lovely to see and experience. Very calming and interesting - well worth a visit, especially if you're going to see Big Buddha.

Lets get the first hurdle out of the way, there is a steep hike up a hill involved and even though it is shaded and the hike trail is lined with hundreds of Buddhist idols along the way, you are going to get steamy and hot, especially in the summer, no matter how fit you are! Bring some water to... More

you'll won't see all 10,000 monk statues while you're climbing up the probably 10,000 steps! it seems to go on forever but it does end. there's a veggie restaurant on top, small store, great views and an additional stairs for more if you still have the energy.
