Overview

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.

Entrance by an office building can easily be confused with the cemetery next door. Long way up but def worth visiting . The main temple on top is beautiful!!

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