From its main entrance, left and right are golden statues in different poses and smiles. Be ready though, as the way up to the monastery is a bit tiresome. Miniature Buddhas are located in the main temple which are uniquely placed and arranged around the walls. It is a must see monastery.

I was greeted with an amazing sight of statues lining the steep path, helped by 431 steps from the base of the hill up to the Monastery, and surprised to find monks not buddhas, each with different expressions, poses and dress. So I must correct everyone regarding the 500 "buddhas" that lines the path up to the monastery. They are... More

Went there today. Take the mtr subway to Sha Tin and look for the exit signs in the mtr that indicate which exit to walk there. I didn't pay attention and just grabbed a taxi. Three min later I was there. Noticed the sign when I returned. The entrance is not well marked. There is a large marble wall with... More

I loved the Buddhas various expressions and poses all the way to the top. It is an easy hike and very quick to do. The name is slightly deceiving as there are only about 4-500 big buddhas along the way to the top. The remaining are miniatures all lined up in a room once you're at the top.

This place is amazing, and only a few minutes away from the Shantin MTR. Its not overly complicated to find just locate the police department and its the path right beyond the parking structure. The walk up is amazing, and the monastery is breath taking. This place even rendered my very talkative 8 year old speechless! Now the stairs up... More

Worth to travel at this destination. It is not so popular in travellers this place. And there is no fees to visit this place. But worth to have a life time experience. You have to climb alot of stair case to reach up. But once you reach on the top you will think you have achieved something really good. There... More

This is an interesting Monstery in Sha Tin. It is close to Sha Tin MTR, but not easily found, unless research is done beforehand. This place has around 10000 buddhas in various forms, and sizes. You start from the base, and work your way up the hill, which can be very tiring. Once you are on top though, you get... More

Shatin Plaza or Shatin Central Exit A. Walk down the ramp pass the buses and mini buses. You will see home square in from of you (IQEA) and walk down the road between the back of Home Square and the government buildings. The path isn't signposted but you can see a metal fence and greenery so head for that. You... More

Located a few minutes walking distance from Shantin MTR. It was a bit complicated for us to find the place since there is a only few small ineligible signals :( The main journey up to the monastery is an attraction itself, as the path is lined on both sides with golden Buddhas, each unique and in different poses. Please be... More

I've been to the 10,000 Buddha's Monastery Shatin twice now, the first time the Pagoda near the entrance was being repaired then a year later wow it was impressive. The site is a short walk from Shatin mtr but the walk is quite steep but it's worth the hike to take photos along the way. There is a vegetarian restaurant... More
