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.

Excellent building 10 thousand Buddha each one has their own character, Buddha face expressions are so real. But from the top view is just ok. Quite far from center. For people who are Buddhist it is a place to go

We had a vegetarian lunch here after visiting Po Lin. OMG what fantastic food! IT was advertised as a 'light vegetarian lunch' WRONG it was a scrumptious banquet!

Take as long or as little time as you like in this peaceful zone, only a short walk from the MTR. The gardens are beautifully maintained and the monastery buildings themselves are works of the highest quality of architecture. Free entry, just enjoy the solitude.

Very interesting site adjacent to the Big Buddha - many people buy and burn large insence sticks there so the smell is devine

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