The Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery is located in Sha Tin New Territories on the hill which is a little bit of the beaten tourist paths. Foundes in the 1950, Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery is actually not only temple, but consists of 5 temples, 4 pavilions and one pagoda. Be prepared to walk more than 430 steps and a steep concrete path uphill.
It is not an actual monastery as there are no resident monks and is managed by laypersons. this is where you can start counting the buddhas as the path is flanked on both sides with life-size images of the Buddha, all different and in all types of poses and depicting all sorts of facets of daily life.There are actually over ten thousand figurines, more like 13,000 Buddha statues in the entire complex.
There are a few rest stops along the path with small benches so you can catch your breath or simply admire all the little details on each of the gilded statues.It takes about 15-20 minutes at a leisurely pace. The center pavillion has a statue of Kuan Yin "Goddess of Mercy" (in the back) and the temple guardians. It is a beautiful and compact space, certainly more quiet and peaceful than other temples or the Big Buddha in Lantau.
