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.

The path is much longer than the big Buddha stairs. The path is lined with status of monks and other representations. When you get to the top there are indeed 10,000 Buddha statues. Most are very small but they are all perfectly lined up. You...More

Nice place with many Buddha sculpures. It is difficult for small children and elders to enjoy the place due to many stairs.

One of the most impressive things I’ve seen in Hong Kong! For me even more amazing then Big Buddha. It’s a short walk uphills to the temple and the whole road is edged by thousands of golden Buddha statues in life-size! The road is quite...More

It's a little out of the way but a must do when in Hong Kong. The closest metro was Sha Tin and it was a short walk from the station. There's a temple nearby which was quite nice too. It's a bit of a hike...More

Hard part is the walking up the stairs but worth it at the end!! Be aware if monkeys so keep your bags close to you, apart from the steep walk up the steps very peaceful when you get up and very picturesque.

An enjoyable way to get away from the hustle and bustle of HK; not as easy to find as some attractions in Hong Kong, but certainly worth it if you can spare the time. Tip - On leaving Sha Tin MTR station, exit B, follow...More

Located a bit off the beaten track, the closest MTR is Sha Tin and then a 5-10 min walk away. At the entrance there are plenty of posters warning you of fake monks asking you for money. There are a lot of stairs and we...More

This is a 'must see' monastery. Mostly local tourism. Worth the climb up the hill. Also visit the other temples on the same hill.

We took a train from Hong Kong Central Station, then a short walk. Then up you go, with Buddhas lining the way, all different other than being gold. The views from the top are tremendous, and all the Buddhas will fill you with awe. Be...More

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