A steep climb to reach, but efforts are rewarded with over 12,000 Buddhas both outside and inside the temple. There is no admission fee. A small restaurant at the top offers refreshments, but bring your own water for the trail.

I live in Hong Kong and this is my favorite religious architecture. I always suggest visitors go here instead of Big Buddha. Ten Thousand Buddhas is a multi-level compound snaking up a hill. As you walk up you'll pass "ten thousand" golden buddhas along the...More

Tuff walk up the mountain walkway to the monastery, but all sides is covered with different statues and gives you something to look at. The actual monastery is quite impressive with over 10.000 small Buddha statues which supposedly all are different (didn't count or was...More

I'm not sure if there's other ways to get to the top. (I don't read Chinese.) but the hike we took was intense. We weren't quite prepared for the long humid, hot hike. But it was still an awesome experience. The temple grounds at the...More

Although this Monastery is hard to find - we enjoyed our trip. We were greeted by a monk, and assumed he was doing some cultural greeting, until he hit us up for cash. Please be aware - as he only approached European looking tourists.

This is an attraction that must be seen, alot of people miss out on it. The walk up is a little long, but totally worth it! So many people go and see the big buddha without realizing this even exists. Don't miss it!

You go to the ShaTin stop! (I believe it's the baby blue line). There is no entrance fee :)
