Rare gem in a restless city. Everything is so calm and zen here. Guided tour (Cantonese only) and heart sutra calligraphy sessions are highly recommended. Remember to pre-book your visit online as it's open for appointments only.

Quanyin is the bodhisattva of compassion. It's very important to visit this monastery established in fine detail and elegance by Mr. Li Ka-shing. I recommend copying the Lotus Sutra in the meditation hall. It's extremely peaceful and a lovely experience.

This is a typical tourist place, but well worth seeing, it will show you what old HK was like. I liked it.

A tranquil and spiritual "Tang Architecture" temple away from the bustling side of Hong Kong. Beautiful "Goddess of Mercy and Compassion" or "Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva". This is a private own property thus there is a control of number of visitors a day. Advance booking...More
