  • 和一般的寺院不同,造訪慈山寺需要提前預約。寺廟靜謐、莊嚴,有許多有趣的參學活動。寺院導覽大約一個半小時,會講解主要建築並普及佛教知識。特別推薦寺院的抄經活動,近距離體會佛教精髓。 慈山寺建築以仿唐為主,重簷疊嶂、雄偉開闊。這裡不接受香燭,供水更為莊重。值得一提的是,自然景觀也非常優美。 
  • For good Feng Shui, great seaview and most importantly an out-of-HK experience with its luxurious space, TS Monastery is a MUST see. You need to make reservation at least a month in advance. Everythin...  more »
  • Before travelling to Hong Kong, then book online in advance to make an appointment date, time, traffic, but there are a few technical errors. There must be a call to change the date, time, talking with the temple but in the end it. Select the new time instead. When going up to the temple and Photo: beauty Goddess elements, elements and the surrounding area of the temple. The location overlooking the mountains and the sea. Every one a most beautiful mantles Iglesias has much merit here.

  • Advanced booking is required. A buddhist monastery with a real state of peace and quiet. The monastics will lead activities such as tea meditation, zen calligraphy, walking meditation etc. A must go place in Hong Kong
  • Glad that it was an open day for us to have a chance to visit this monastery with the world second largest bronze Guanyin statue in the world. Normal days this place requires reservation in advance. Great voice tour using their WiFi and app and Bluetooth.
  • Beautiful new monastery with a gorgeous giant Guanyin statue. You need to make a booking via their website before you can visit, but the visit is free. Free guided tours are available twice a day, lasting 1.5 hours. There are also other events and activities for free throughout the day, like a calligraphy event. There are beautiful statues throughout the monastery, but the star is of course the giant Guanyin statue. Other than that there is actually not much here if you don't take part in the events or join the guided tour. There is a vegetarian restaurant here if you want a bite to eat. The monastery is situated on the top of a peak, and the scenery looking down is beautiful, with the clouds making it look a bit like heaven. It's a bit of a trek to get here, you need to go to Taipo market MTR station and change to the 20b minibus. The mini bus drops you off at the bottom of a hill which you need to trek up for about 15mins to get to the entrance of the monastery. It's probably easier to get a taxi from the station to be honest. On the way back however, there is a 20t minibus that actually drives from the monastery directly back to the MTR station, and runs every 30mins until 5pm. Otherwise you have to walk back down the hill and catch the 20b again.
  • You need to book in advance if you are planning to visit this monastery, at least couple of months ahead. The monastery only permit a small number of visitors per day, timed at 30 minute interval. So if you plan ahead, you will be able to visit this lovely place, it is tranquil and peaceful, given that there is a limited number of visitors. You are able to participate in zen calligraphy and tried some vegetarian food. Highly recommended. It is far from Central or TST, go to Ma On Shan and than transfer to a local bus, but probably the easiest way is to take a taxi.
  • A five stars must go place in Hong Kong! The BEST part is that it's not open for PUBLIC but you need to book in an advance! This is a place where you can really explore religion and experience the peaceful side of Hong Kong. Those it's not yet opened to the public, it's quite noisy during the peak of the visit..the environment is superb ✨ The downside is that the transportation is comparatively not very convenient and require quite a lot of walking..
