A little hard to find, but this is a surprising and quirky place. The climb is not steep, well shaded by monkey inhabited trees (seriously!) and you see a heck a lot of buddhas of every possible expression. Highly recommended f you are in ShaTin, but I wouldn't put it on a must-do list otherwise. One nice bonus--no crowds, no... More

I would definitely recommend, but there are a LOT of steps, so just be prepared for the climb. Take your time, and check out the monks on the way up - they're all different, and some have interestingly exaggerated features.

It's quite tricky to find it because there are no signs around unlike other tourist attractions. Thank God for Google maps! Your GPS will certainly be a huge help to find this hidden gem. It is definitely a workout climbing up hundreds of steps uphill so make sure to wear comfortable shoes. There is no entrance fee.

This was by far my favorite stop while in Hong Kong. It was slightly out of the way, but worth it! You arrive at the train station go behind a building and through a fenced area. There is not a great entrance sign, but once you get into the area you know you are in the right place. There are... More

Just near the railway station you can find the temple of the 10,000 Buddhas. It will take a 5min walk, but the entry is not very easy to find!! The visit of the temples starts with a long walk up the stairs. Along the stairs a lot of golden budda's are welcoming you! At the top you have several buildings... More

I wont lie is a long walk up the hill if you are not used to, however is fun to go upstairs looking at all the different buddhas on the sides, the most important thing is that once you get to the top you really see the 10k buddhas in a temple and the view from there is amazing, I... More

In the midst of modern Hong Kong a back trail leads to a long series of stairs, lined with buddhas, up to an open courtyard, then again a few more stairs up to the very top. I've never seen so many buddhas before!

The ten thousand buddhas monastery is a bit different than the other ones. You can not really entre the monastery, you can just watch from the outside, through the opened doors. No pictures can be taken, too. On the other hand, the monastery is very old, so authentic, and you can see the monks praying there. Definitely not to miss... More

IA few minute walk from train station. It is located beside a cemetery. Ask locals for direction better, most of them knownthe place. Going up to the temple can be tiring especially if the waether is too hot. Wear comfy shoes.

If you are travelling to Hong Kong and could do with a bit of break from the constant throng of people head out to the new territories a town called Sha Tin. Just near the railway station you can find the temple of the 10,000 Buddhas. I will say, I didn't actually count them but I am sure there were... More
