About
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.
Suggested duration: 1-2 hours

The monastery is very famous in Shatin (New Territories). It was a long walk up to see the golden buddhas all lined up along the stairs. Great photo op... and a nice place to check the box.

This place is incredibly impressive with a collection of fun statues on the walk up to the monastery. The actual grand room with all of the Buddhas is incredible and a highlight of Hong Kong. Be sure to get there an hour before closing time.
