Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery

One of the most dramatic sacred sites in Hong Kong, the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery is perched at the top of a hill in the town of Sha Tin, and visitors must climb 400 stairs to reach the temple and the famous nine-storey pagoda. The monastery actually contains nearly 13,000 buddha statues in the walls alone, however there are no resident monks and it is managed by laypersons.
