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 a 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.
