Place of Worship
“This quirky temple about 500m northwest of Sha Tin station is worth the uphill hike to visit. Built in the 1950s, the complex actually contains more than 10,000 Buddhas. Some 12,800 miniature statues line the walls of the main temple and dozens of life-sized golden statues of Buddha’s followers flank the steep steps leading to the monastery complex. There are several temples and pavilions split over two levels, as well as a nine-storey pagoda. To reach the monastery, take exit B at Sha Tin station and walk down the ramp, passing a series of traditional houses at Pai Tau Village on the left. Take the left onto Pai Tau St, and turn right onto Sheung Wo Che St. At the end of this road, a series of signs in English will direct you to the left along a concrete path and through bamboo groves to the first of some 400 steps leading up to the monastery.”

“Southwest of Sha Tin town centre, this spacious, high-quality museum gives a peek into local history and culture. Highlights include a children's area with interactive play zones, the New Territories Heritage Hall with mock-ups of traditional minority villages, the Cantonese Opera Heritage Hall , where you can watch old operas with English subtitles, and an elegant gallery of Chinese art. Lately, the big draw is a semi-permanent Bruce Lee exhibit , with some 600 items of the Kung Fu star's memorabilia on display until 2018. To reach the Hong Kong Heritage Museum from Che Kung Temple MTR station, walk east along Che Kung Miu Rd, go through the subway and cross the footbridge over the channel.”
