Every single Buddha is different & it's really interesting to look at their faces. There are a huge amount of steps to climb so it's not for people with walking difficulties. Spent a god 4 hours walking around. Worth a visit.

There is a lot of Buddhas with different positions, arranged in a hill to have a nice walk. Far from the city but worth it 100%

Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery. It is a famous Buddhist monastery located on the mountain behind Shatin Pai Tau Village near the Shatin station. Although it is really beautiful place, were there almost nobody. Only few foreign tourists and few local people. There are 431 stairs to the peak of the monastery. Weather was hot and very humid. But it worth... More

I went during busy season on a weekday, and it was very peaceful. As others have mentioned, it's a bit tricky to find, but behind the government buildings there is a sign and an arrow leading to the path. The hundreds of monk statues lining the path up to the main pagoda and hall are only plaster, and have chipping... More

This Monestery is easy enough to reach. The MTR stops just steps away and though a pretty non descript entrance, it is easy enough to find. I was amused to see the "Beware of fake Monks" sign greeting me at the entrance( though no real or fake monks were anywhere to be seen) The trip up to the Monestary is... More

Im giving this property three stars because I got tired from climbing the stairs...They are not joking about the 10,000 buddhas!!! You will definitely see thwm while climbing and whe you reach the top! No worries because they have a canteen where you can drink and eat after that long climb! 😊

It's so fun and interesting to see all of the different golden Buddhas as you walk up. It's quite a walk, especially at the height of the summer heat but well worth it!! There are even wild monkeys that come and walk around, jumping on the Buddhas and swinging on the trees, it's lovely to see them in their own... More
