Beautiful to see Temple and surrounding landscaping is lovely

Beautiful to look at, an idea of what a Buddhist Temple looks like. For a westerner it is a different type of "religious" building. Eye opening.

The monastery itself is absolutely stunning. The buddhas lining the walkway up to the Monastery (no longer a working monastery!) are amazing, and the views when you reach the top are lovely. However the walk up is quite tiring. I did it on a particularly hot day and was drenched with swear by the time I reached the top, and... More

One of the most worth visiting in HK besides victoria bay. Exit sha tin station, heading to the shatin city hall and you will find the way to the temple easily (you can ask people there)

An esoteric collection of ten thousand buddhas in all shapes and sizes... Free and worth the walk up the stairs of you can find it (not very well marked out, perhaps intentionally). Watch out for monkeys and turtles.

it is a beautiful walk uphill but a tough workout, especially after leg day :) make sure you take some water with you before you venture up there. The monastery is beautiful and has some gorgeous statues outside - superb photos awaiting to be taken.

I have been to the 10,000 Buddhas Temple/Monastery twice. I went in May 2011 and then again in September 2016. Both times, I remember the monastery being really hot and feeling quite tired when I reached the top. However, in my travels in Asia, I have not seen another monastery quite like the 10,000 Buddhas one. With so many different... More

Very close to the Sha Tin MTR station although not so well signposted! Pretty steep hike and lots of steps to the top but doesn't feel too long as the path is lined with hundreds of large golden Buddhas to look at on the way! The monastery itself was bigger than I expected and had lots to look around including... More

Very nice view, is a nice monastery but is a new one. From here you have to buy a traditional hat because nowhere in Hong Kong you`ll find.

we both enjoyed this, but be aware when they say 482 steps(we didn't count them) it is a lot of steps, so take plenty of water for the walk up, and go to the white Buddha as well (that one is of to the right of the first temple you get to) that was beautiful.

Very easy to navigate to and find from the metro station. Clearly sign posted / directions. If in doubt, there are many people to ask should you get lost. Take refreshments with you, and wear comfy shoes. This is one of the temples you need to see whilst in Hong Kong. You wont be disappointed.
