If you have any mobility issues, this is not for you. Climb over 400 stairs to the top to see many small temples including the temple that includes over 10,000 copper buddhas, none of them duplicated. Watch out for the thieving monkeys....do not feed! They are known to attack! The temple is beautiful and contains the preserved body of a... More

The entrance to this place is hidden, the very helpful taxi driver didn't know where it was! The path up to the monastery starts in a corner of Sha Tin Rural Committee Road. Be prepared to walk many many steps, but take it very slowly and observe each Buddha. They are all different. It is free to go into the... More

Please if your in Hong Kong do yourself a favour and visit this amazing place! Warning there is a huge uphill walk which many, including myself struggled with but it so so worth it!

If you need to stretch your legs and don't mind a good walk uphill (or up stairs) then head over here. It's kind of hidden but not difficult to get to. We're not in spectacular shape but the good walk uphill was just what we needed to stretch our legs after a very long flight. The path of the many... More

The climb to the monastery was tiring but seeing very many buddhas along the way is pretty amazing. The temple at the top was also nice and we saw more little buddhas inside. There is no entrance fee but there were 2 monks who asked HK$100 in exchange for 2 wooden bracelets that we thought they were giving away for... More

This is one of my favorite temples in Hong Kong. The Buddhas and Boddhisatvas are all uniquely carves so that each has a different face, position, items to hold, etc. The temples at the top are well tended and the statues around the complex look well-maintained and respected. My personal favorite area is the far end to the right of... More

What can you say there's looooads of Buddhas! People write that it's a little difficult to find... it's not so bad. You come out of the MTR station and it's only a couple of streets away. It looks like you're getting to a dead end, but you just go all the way on the path on the left, look to... More

Every single buddha on the way up is a different one. Different face, posture, expression - so it's quite entertaining to imagine the 'model' for each.
