  • 與一般寺廟不同,來這裏要提前約一個月才能預約,但正因如此,少了遊人,多了一份清靜。別以景點看待這個地方,這裏是讓人放鬆心情,好好參透佛學的清靜地,這裏以供水代替香火,少了迷信色彩,更加貼近佛學原意。建議入寺前要先安裝寺方的應用程式,它對每處地方都有清晰講解,當中更別具禪意,讓人有一番體會。至於解脫,原來如此: 「進入寺院的山門,象徵踏出解脫的第一步。在寺院中,透過種種修持,讓我們更加容易放下執著與...  more »

  • 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..
