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 there with our two kids 5&7. It was hot walking up the hill. Maybe take a second t-shirt with you... The Buddhas are just amazing! A must if you are in Hong Kong!

Wear comfortable footwear and get climbing. Lots of buddhas to see, different facial expressions. Not too far from Shatin MTR.

If you love temples and monastaries and such it's okay.. the nunnery in Daimond Hill is much nicer than this and this is just a lot of steps and quite disappointing overall.

You have tot take the MTR to Sha Tin (blue line in the north). When leaving the station go to your right. You see a small "square" at your left site. Take the first Street (as you are oppisite the mall with an Ikea-you see...More

This was my top pick for temples/monasteries during our time in Hong Kong. The path up to the monastery is not too steep, but challenging enough to get your heart rate up. The detail on each of the Buddhas was exceptional. Take care on the...More

Plan to get plenty of exercise if you are planning to climb up the stairs to see the Ten Thousand Buddhas. Also bring and umbrella or hat for sun or rainy season. Each one of the Buddhas is beautiful and has unique characteristics.

I live in Hong Kong and this is my favorite religious architecture. I always suggest visitors go here instead of Big Buddha. Ten Thousand Buddhas is a multi-level compound snaking up a hill. As you walk up you'll pass "ten thousand" golden buddhas along the...More

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