This is one of my favorite temples in Hong Kong. The Buddhas and Boddhisatvas are all uniquely carves so that each has a different face, position, items to hold, etc. The temples at the top are well tended and the statues around the complex look well-maintained and respected. My personal favorite area is the far end to the right of... More

What can you say there's looooads of Buddhas! People write that it's a little difficult to find... it's not so bad. You come out of the MTR station and it's only a couple of streets away. It looks like you're getting to a dead end, but you just go all the way on the path on the left, look to... More

Every single buddha on the way up is a different one. Different face, posture, expression - so it's quite entertaining to imagine the 'model' for each.

Non locals probably won't visit this place as it is a bit out of the way. There are many statues but they are unrefined. The color scheme is very primitive. Worth a visit only if you have the time and enjoy hiking.

Perhaps because this monastery is located at a significant incline with many steps, it was not as crowded as most. A beautiful, serene location-and while I didn't count, there are many, many Buddhas.

This is worth visiting, even though a little out of the way. I found it more experiential and intimate than going to the Big Buddha. Don't expect "razzle-dazzle" -- it's all about the peaceful energy and serenity of the surroundings. Feels sacred. It is a hike up the path so do need to be a walker, but you are met... More
