What people are saying:

To visit Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island, you must take the cable car up. Po Lin Monastery is the largest temple in Hong Kong. There are many tourists and not many pilgrims. The Hall of Ten Thousand Buddhas at the Po Lin Monastery is shining golden, no matter the size of the Buddha, the magnet or the gilding is very delicate. I walked through the Heart Sutra Simplified Forest again. The 261 words of the Heart Sutra were carved on a tree trunk that was split in half. The tree trunks were arranged like bamboo slips on a small hill in the order of the article. The formation was a vertical wooden sign. It is also a record of happiness to leave a shadow under the mountain top Buddha on the way back.

Additional Information

Introduction

The remote Po Lin Monastery, hidden away by lush mountains, became a popular attraction when the extraordinary Tian Tan Buddha statue (informally known as the Big Buddha) was erected in 1993. At 34 m tall, this majestic bronze Buddha draws pilgrims from all over Asia. Po Lin Monastery is one of Hong Kong’s most important Buddhist sanctums and has been dubbed "the Buddhist World in the South." Home to many a devout monk, this monastery is rich with colorful manifestations of Buddhist iconography and its pleasant garden is alive with birdsong and flowery scents. You can also enjoy a meal at its popular vegetarian restaurant.
