Wisdom Path, Hong Kong

(45+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
Take a meditative walk along Wisdom Path, an arrangement of monuments representing important prayer verses. The 38 monuments each display verses from the ancient Heart Sutra, which is sacred to Confucians, Buddhists, and Taoists. Wander up close and you'll see the prayers, engraved in Chinese symbols into the structures. Notice how the monuments form an infinity pattern. While a popular attraction, the place retains a feeling of serenity and calm. Combine this with a visit to the Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery. Put Wisdom Path into our Hong Kong itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • This place is unbelievable. The peace of walking and connecting with nature. Really loved it. This wisdom path is made out of wooden huge wisdom quotes that all together form an infinity símbol. I suggest to dress comfortable
  • Wisdom of Path, located in Lantau Island. In same location with Tian Tan Buddha, Po Lin Monastery. You need to have walk to be here around 10 minutes from the Po Lin Monastery. All just good, so relaxing to be there. See the mountain, everything looks so green. And you will see the Wisdom Path traces a series of 38 wooden steles (upright monuments) containing verses from the centuries-old Heart Sutra — one of the world’s best-known prayers revered by Confucians, Buddhists and Taoists alike.
  • Nice view... these steles display the Chinese version of the prayer, based on the calligraphy of famous contemporary scholar Professor Jao Tsung-I, and are arranged in a ∞ pattern, which represents infinity...~ ~ ~
  • Nice place to visit but you need to walk a bit from Po Lin Monastery. Very peaceful and tranquil as Ashley Mak said two months ago.
  • A place with wooden poles standing in forest. However it is built under the destruction of primary good forest and habitats of creatures. It's nonsense to remove such a good vegetation in order to place this kind of 'art' which can be placed anywhere.
