Ten Thousand Buddhas Temple


From Shatin MTR Station. The monastery, better known as the ten thousand Buddhas Temple, was founded in 1957 by the monk, Yuet Kai. After his died in 1965 at the age of 87 - it is said he predicted the date of his death - his body did not decompose. His corpse, now covered in gold leaf , is on display here.

The entire complex is home to an estimated 13.000 Buddha stases, all of which were donated by the faithful. The courtyard has a lovely view over Sea Tin and the surrounding countryside.

Another kind of scam artist to beware of are the resident monkeys, watch out they will be looking for "unattended items" to help themselves...
