About Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery, Hong Kong

A steep climb to reach, but efforts are rewarded with over 12,000 Buddhas both outside and inside the temple. It is not an actual monastery as there are no resident monks and is managed by laypersons.

It was built by Yuet Kai, a devout Buddhist layman, built it. There is a pagoda, a hall, two pavilions and a tower in the architectural structure at the lower level. There are four halls in another structure at the higher level. The five halls in the monastery are used to house the statues of Buddha’s. A small restaurant at the top offers refreshments, but brings your own water for the trail.

  • Just remember if you see an escalator go back, as that is the cemetery. It on a side road, if you start seeing golden Buddhas you are at the right spot. Prepare for a long climb with lots of stairs. Great view over Sha Tin.

  • Nice experience. No one mentioned the stairs to the top. It took a while to get to the top. I recommend this place and really liked the ten thousand buddha hal. Get going!

  • It is really not hard to find as people claim. Thanks to some accurate reviews from other fellow local guides. Yes the golden buddhas are amazing but I wish I could learn more about the differences between each of them and why some are higher up or differently coloured the base than others . I personally enjoyed the ancient clock which goes with the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. The vegan restaurant is a bit overpriced though. I also was amazed at the white Buddha with a waterfall running along the background. It's good they haven't 'touristized' this place but I wish I could learn more about the history.

  • If you would, let's say, choose between going to the ten thousand Buddhas and the Big Buddha (Tian Tan Buddha), I personally would have suggested going to the Bid Buddha.The reason for this is mainly because I think the Big Buddha is over all more spectacular with the scenery, views, and so on. The Ten Thousand Buddhas is however less crouded, it's for free, and it's definetely still jaw dropping.

  • It seems quite touristy with a strange vibe to it. The place was recently restored, but it seems a bit too polished a la Disneyland. It doesn't seem authentic.
