Chuk Lam Sim Yuen is not widely known amongst Buddhist Temples in HK, but it is amongst the nicest in terms of atmosphere. Getting here from Tsuen Wan MTR is not far, but once you're out of the pedestrian bridges, it's a mild trek going up to the hill where the temple is located. There are actually many Buddhist temples... More

The monastery is located in the New Territories and consists of several halls. At the entrance to the monastery is a four-faced Brahma statue. Inside are some of the largest golden Buddha statues in Hong Kong. The courtyard of the monastery has a depiction of the Shangri-La - the western paradise. Located in the new territories, the monastery is peaceful... More

This Buddhist temple is heavily used by locals so you should be respectful of those at worship. There are several buildings, each higher up than the next. Inside each are many Buddhist statues with altars holding offerings from flowers to oranges to oil bottles. In one, there were Buddhist monks burning offerings from worshippers. Out side there are vendors selling... More

We visited this monastery with a bus tour. It was the highlight of the day. Although undergoing renovation, it was completely open for an interesting visit. The statues are superb, ornate and telling a vivid picture of the various deities involved. It's hard to believe that this oasis of calm is only a very short distance from the hustle &... More

If you are interested in Buddhist temples by all means visit. It is very peaceful, quiet and relaxing here. Catch the MRT to Tsuen Wan. Take Exit B1 and follow the footbridge over the main road (Castle Peak Road) to Shui Wo Street ( Shui Wo Street runs parallel to the MRT line and is the next street away from... More

The building is nothing special and the paint looks cheap. However when you look inside, you will see some of the most beautiful statues in Hong Kong. Easy to reach by minibus in Tsuen Wan

Wonderful Zen temple complex located in the Tsuen Wan District of Hong Kong. My favorite part of the temple complex is the "Hall of 500 Arhats" located at the top of the mountain peak - inside which housed a two storey of 500 golden statues whilst the buddhist mantras were played on the background - serene experience. On the balcony,... More

Wonderfull monastery on the hills of Tsuen Wan. There was a religious ceremony going on at 11:45 on weekday. It's quite and not touristic - worth a visit! There is even a bus stop nearby.
