Wisdom Path, Hong Kong

#197 of 1,105 in Things to do in Hong Kong
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.

  • After half of the logs with a second engraved on the text, the surrounding environment is not wrong, but the hinterland of the garden area is limited, the garden area ladder is built along the mountain and is also as small as narrow, there is no very special place, if the time permits may wish to take a walk, but even if the wrong words will not feel pity.

  • A quiet place surrounded by trees about 15-minute walk from bustling Heaven Temple of Buddha. Is lined with carved in the Heart Sutra, said power spot in the size of the cage in place. Classic attractions can be visited together with Tian Tan Buddha

  • Short walk away from the main square. Nice little path with rectangular monuments. There's signs that explain what they are in english.
  • Famous Chinese quotations carved into split tree trunks. A nice 15 minute walk away from the main Tian Tan Buddha area.
  • Peaceful, enlightening. Great view. Small figure of 8 path. A nice walk from the village.
  • Don't skip out on this place if you're visiting Lantau Island! It's a short walk from Ngong Ping Village and offers a break from the crowds. The walk is very easy. Try to read up on the significance of this place before coming.
  • We did this with a guide via the 11am nature walk. Well worth seeing. Beautiful views.
