I first read about this place and I tried to visit it once before but did not find the entrance. When I was able to locate the entrance, I was quite unsure as the pathway had to go through unkempt foliage. The climb was really steep but one get to view Buddha statues of different sizes and shapes. The temple... More

My wife and I took the wrong path and ended up on the memorial temple. It looks convenient: escalators and cable cars to go up. But if you are heading for the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery, look for a small sign and turn to the right alley. Avoid going up on the left path, because it is steep and not... More

This was incredible, yes a bit of a walk up a lot of stairs, everything is worth it however. The golden Buddhas are all slightly different on the ascent, the main hall has more miniature ones and there are amazing views. We even saw some wild monkeys wandering around!

This is a must visit if you are in HGK. Surely there are the stairs but to be honest it wasn't too hard to walk the way up escpecially if you are used to walking. ;-) .. On top you have a beautiful view and can enjoy the buddha's and monkeys! :-)

This monastery has been built in Shatin quite a long time ago, but I do not know when. At least more than 60 years old when Shatin was still a village and not yet developed as present. It is nice to walk up and have a look around. I have not counted the number of buddhas. If you have ample... More

For sure if you want to enjoy the 10,000 statues of Bouddhas, you will have to climb a little but the way to the monastery and Pagoda is also a perfect moment : take time to climb and enjoy all the different statue. At the top, you will enjoy nice view, peaceful pagoda, temples and colorful statues... for Free. Better... More
