Tsz Shan Monastery (慈山寺) in Hong Kong

In November 2017, I visited Tsz Shan Monastery, a stunning, 500,000 square foot complex designed based on Tang Dynasty monastic architecture. The monastery is dedicated to Guan Yin, and the 76-meter tall statue at the monastery is the world’s tallest bronze Guan Yin monastery. Unlike most other monasteries, Tsz Shan Monastery is incense free, and one uses water in its place to pay respect to Guan Yin.


Please note that visitors need to make an online reservation in advance to ensure a peaceful, tranquil environment.  I booked weeks in advance at their

website here:

To get there, take the MTR to the Tai Po Market Station.  Then catch one of the minibuses going towards the monastery, such as 75K or 75T, and follow the road to get to the monastery.  It is important to make sure one shows up in advance of the entrance time.
