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.

I was expecting ten thousand stautes, but realised when we arrived that they were mostly photos. HOWEVER, it's still an impressive building, and the Buddha statues are very, very impressive. The whole complex is a really interesting thing to look around.

This monastery is a bit hidden and very surprising - I loved going up (and down) the stairs surrounded by all the 'human' size buddhas. It is very pretty and unusual ! It is not far from the City Center and it is free. I...More

Be prepared for a long flight of steps up. Take your time to appreciate the Buddhas along the stairs and you might even spot monkeys. The temple up is grandiose. You can even climb a bit further up to see a mini waterfall and tortoise...More

An absolutely wonderful place; very peaceful. The long climb, with a guard of honour from golden statues, is well worth it for the incredible sights at the top. Highly recommended.

The path is paved, however, it is quite steep in places. Also, if you’re going now, it will be extraordinarily hot and humid. Personally, there are a lot of more suitable places to take your 10 month-old in HK.
