Also known as the Thousand Buddhas Temple, a magnificent construction in which monks still live, beautiful architecture, you can't miss this temple! I will upload some pictures

Very cool temple and monastery right near the Buddha statue. Take the cable car up and explore the Buddha, temple, and don't miss the wisdom path. The statues inside a amazing, but be careful as the staff is not keen on taking photos of them. The complex is also fairly small, so don't expect a huge amount of time exploring it.

Take the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car to the site of the Big Buddha and the Po Lin Monastery. You'll arrive at what seems like a small Theme Park, which is a little weird, but continue walking through and you come to the more expected monastery grounds. The 200+ steps up to the Big Buddha are quite busy but you'll arrive at the top, stroll around and take in the view. Before you head back down to see the monastery itself, be sure to pick up your complementary ice cream and bottle of water. The Po Lin Monastery isn't complete. But what is open to the public is all very ornate and intricately decorated. There is a pack of presumably stray dogs that roam around. They're pretty chilled and I guess the monks look after them to some degree. It was a very pleasant trip and box that should be ticked when you visit Hong Kong.

Glad to have gone here! Nice to see the sights apart from the beautiful city.

I loved being at Po Lin in 1969. It was very different in appearance, but lovely and welcoming. We stayed a few days, maybe a week even. The food was wonderful. We were there for an important day in Buddhist celebration although I can't remember now which one. Since then I have maintained a life long practice of Dharma. What I would like to know is how to donate money to Po Lin if anyone knows that. It would be in remembrance of a great stay. Thanks very much and I hope many people can enjoy this paradise.
