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.

If you want to see a lot of buddhas , go there. It is a climb of about 400 steps. Along the steps are the golden buddhas. Unfortunately not well maintained and no where an explanation in English, only in Chinese. Thats a pitty.

It is easy to get to on the MTR from central HK, yet it's at the same time out of the way. It's a long haul up to the monastery - well over 420 steps (I lost count) and lots of flat bits too. The...More

A weird but beautiful place to visit. Once you climb up the hill passing all the gold colored different Buddha's you reach this beautiful temple at the top of the hill.

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