Overview

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.

We went over Chinese New Year last year. It was a little tricky to find it in Shatin, but we got there. It is quite a hike up the mountain, but there are so many Buddhas to look at. There are benches on the way...More

This is a serious walk and climb, leading to a beautiful view on the city of Shatin. The grounds however are poorly maintained. Well, let's be correct. Actually, this is not a real monastery, but the work of one person and some volunteers. And seen...More

Put this on your list of things to see. Big climb with Buddha statues leading your way up many steps but well worth it. Views are also great. The 10 thousand Buddha’s are impressive.

It's a cool place to visit while you're in Hong Kong. Once you reach the top you have a great view of the city, dont forget to bring water. You can get there using the metro station and then you just have to walk a...More

Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery is located in Sha tin, north of Kowloon. Take the MTR to Sha Tin Station (light blue line). Follow the exit signs out of the station. As soon as you're out near the bus area, you'll see the Ten Thousand Buddhas...More

Located in Sha Tin (New Territories), this sprawling ‘monastery’ (no monks live here, so their term is used figuratively) is full of fascinating and exquisite architecture. There are numerous buildings (shrines, halls, temples) set atop a multi-level complex. The walk up, passing thousands of images/statues...More

Awesome place if you take the trouble to find it. Makes for great photo opportunities but do take your time as you climb and carry with you a bottle of water (we saw some people giving up and turning back) but it is worth it...More

We decided rather last minute to go to the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery after reading about it online. It took us approximately 25 minutes from Causeway Bay on the MTR. It looks like they are investing some money in tidying this place up as works...More

Hidden away up a big hill and a short distance from the train station. A lot of steps. Very impressive with many statues and great photo opportunities. I’ve visited twice and the second visit was just as great. My teenagers loved it. Good city views...More

My visit to the Ten Thousand Buddhas monastery turned out to be a huge waste of time. Not only is it far from the central areas of Hong Kong, but getting there is really difficult. The monastery was very hard to find and I actually...More

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