Finally, a nice lady pointed us to this direction. Our great insider from HK (Ate Yen) told us not to take the escalator daw else mapapalayo kami so we decided to take the stairs instead, only to find out na yung stairs and escalator headed to the same floor Hahaha
Sa totoo lang, nakakatakot maglakad noh, alam mo yun, parang baka mamya eh magsibuhay na magmuli tong mga istatwang to.
Haaay, yan na yun.
The Main Temple and the Pagoda of the Monastery are graded as Grade III Historic Buildings due to their historic significance
Shucks!!! Yung kabayooo!
Ang founder, the venerable Yuet Kai. He founded the Monastery in 1951. The construction was finished in 1957. Born into a rich family, at the age of 19 he dedicated his life to Buddhism, burning his two smallest fingers on his left hand and cutting a piece of flesh as big as his hand from his chest to light forty-eight oil lamps to show his dedication to Buddhism. He then set out on a life studying Buddhism and helping all in need that he came across.
If you noticed, gloomy ang weather. Inabot kami ng 10,000 years kaya inbutan kami ng ulan. Grabe what a stormy rain it was. Basang-basa kami, hulas ang mga byooti! Nevertheless, it was fun. I haven’t seen so many buddhas in my life, dito, magsasawa ka. You’ll be amazed. Grabe the effort they made just to put all those buddhas on top of the hill. If that doesn’t surpise you, nothing will.
To go there: Take the MTR/KCR to the Shatin station, head towards the Park Road. Once you see Ikea, turn left, passing the Shatin City Hall yata yun. If you’re a reklamador and so arte, this is a MUST NOT see sight. But the monastery at the top and the views are breathtaking! If you’re travelling HK for a long period of time, gora kayo dito. It’s worth your time, pramis pa.
