The Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery are a major draw for Buddhist pilgrims. And these majestic religious monuments, set against beautiful mountain and coastal scenery, are just as popular with a wide range of visitors in Hong Kong.
*** The staircase leading to the Big Buddha is temporarily closed for improvement. Meanwhile, renovation and maintenance works of the Big Buddha Statue have been completed and all religious ceremonies and events will continue as usual, please check the official website before you visit. ***
