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.

Great to see the different faces of the Great Buddha. Though we failed to reach the top because we got there several days after the wrath 9f a strong typhoon. There are still many trees around scattered along the path. But if you are fit...More
This place is nice. I don't know if it was worth it to me to walk up to the actual Monastary, but it was a nice place to visit.
So if you see lots of steps and long escalators that don't work, that's not the...More

It was 35 degrees so the walk up the path, climbing the stairs was challenging but it was also brilliant, between a "guard of honour" of Buddhas, up the mountain / hill. I only did the section with the male Buddhas due to the heat...More

You'd think, surly not ten thousand Buddhas in this hall, but there would be if you could count them all. In the intricately decorated hall, full of colour and gold, there are thousands of Buddha statues in a few different sizes. You are not allowed...More
I visited the ten thousand Buddha monastery with my sister past April. When exiting the station we walked towards the shopping mall (you can see it from the station) which is a five minute walk away. From there we had to ask how to get...More

The path is paved, however, it is quite steep in places. Also, if you’re going now, it will be extraordinarily hot and humid. Personally, there are a lot of more suitable places to take your 10 month-old in HK.
