    Monasterio de los 10.000 budas

    Buda en la explanada del monasterio
    1 more image

    Pequeño y muy pintoresco monsaterio a las afueras de Hong kong. Muy bien accesible por tren pero muy duro de subir si de por si te encuentras con un típico dia de verano en Hong kong; es decir 41 grados y 100 de humedad. Es un pequeño calvario que merece la pena hacer. En el comienzo de la subida hay que tener mucho cuidado porque comparte entrada con un cementerio y es muy facil equivocarte y entrar en éste en lugar de en el monasterio. Para que no hay equivocos se puede decir que si ves un ascensor para bajar ese no es el monasterio sino el cementerio.

  • 10,000 BUDDHAS MONASTERY -NOT TO BE MISSED

    by TONYALAWSON Written Jun 12, 2005

    THE ENTRANCE TO THE MONASTERY

    Take the MTR to the Shatin stop and get off -head towards Park Road. You will see Ikea straight ahead. Walk in front of it -you will see a small yellow sign for the 10,000 buddhas monastery. The signs then suddenly stop. We ended up in Shatin cemetery -you need the little alley way between the cemetery / multi story. After a few seconds you will see why this is a MUST see sight. Not in any guide books the very steep climb to the monastery is lined with individual buddhas. There monastery at the top and the views are breathtaking! The MOST colourful display i have ever seen. It was definitely worth the steep trek. Take plenty of water for the climb - it is WELL worth it!!!

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Witness a different type of culture at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, the largest of its kind in Hong Kong. Traditional Chinese design and modern construction techniques are reflected in the five-storey building with Chinese-style roofs and the courtyard characterised by a central axis. Inside, various aspects of history, arts and culture are captured in different exhibition galleries including the Cantonese Opera Heritage Hall, Children's Discovery Gallery, T.T. Tsui Gallery of Chinese Art and Hong Kong Gallery of Contemporary Art and Design.

    The fortified Hakka village of Tsang Tai Uk, or 'Tsang's Big House', built in 1848, is the next stop on your tour. The three rows of granite, brick and timber houses were arranged to form a rectangle, all interlined by passages and courtyards, and include defensive towers at the four corners.
