The path is very long and high, but it's worth it. The decoration inside the main hall is stunning! Unfortunately, taking photo inside is prohibited. You can also see the view of the city from the top of the place too.

It was a viewing pleasure to walk amidst the ten thousand Buddhas on both sides of the long stairway. Prayed and bought some souvenirs at the top. It's a must visit if you have the strength and time.

This is an easy location to get to from down town (using the MTR), and well worth the climb to the top!

Leave MTR at exit B and follow signs to Sha Tin Government Offices. Turn right when you see the parking sign and you will see a multi storey on your right hand side in the top corner of this dead end. The entrance is on the opposite side (left hand side) down a small paved path, surrounded by fairly high... More

Visit in the morning not to get too much sun. Take water because there are more than 430 steps to climb to the top of the monastery. And the best: you pay nothing to visit it.

The temple is hard to find. Do not follow online maps. Instead look out for the market at the bottom of the ramp from the station. They sell fruit, flowers and other temple offerings. Follow the route through the market and eventually you will start to climb and see steps. Don't use this route out of the temple as you... More

When we have gone through the reviews of this place and decided to visit, we did not realize this place is going to be so much good. This is very nice place located in remote area. To reach this place is a bit confusing. You have another famous temple in-between which may make you confused. Just come out of MTR... More

This monastery is an excellent place to visit, with its 5 temples and many statues of followers of the Buddha. Be warned though, the climb up the stairs is steep and quite demanding. If you are planning to do this in the summer take plenty of water and be prepared to take your time. There are resting places along the... More
