Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery is located in Sha tin, north of Kowloon. Take the MTR to Sha Tin Station (light blue line). Follow the exit signs out of the station. As soon as you're out near the bus area, you'll see the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery signs. It is a short easy walk to the trail up to the Monastery. The trail isn't so short or easy. It isn't that long either... it is just steep. That said, it is nothing most folks can't handle and I'd recommend you just go at your own pace. The entire trail up to the monastery is lined on both sides with life-sized golden statues, each one different and representing a particular monk. There are 500 total! At the top of the trail are various monastery complexes, each one beautiful in their own rite. The preserved corpse of monastery founder Yuet Kai is also in one of the monastery buildings. There is a gift shop and drinks and snacks are available at the top. The place is incredibly beautiful and very peaceful. Monkeys can be seen along the trail up and around the perimeter of the monastery (they are kept off of the grounds). We spotted an albino macaque that just hung around us until we left and one of the lay caretakers chased it away. This is by far, the favorite of the temples I have visited in Hong Kong.
