We visited this monastery with a bus tour. It was the highlight of the day. Although undergoing renovation, it was completely open for an interesting visit. The statues are superb, ornate and telling a vivid picture of the various deities involved. It's hard to believe...More

Wonderfull monastery on the hills of Tsuen Wan. There was a religious ceremony going on at 11:45 on weekday. It's quite and not touristic - worth a visit! There is even a bus stop nearby.
