Buddhist Monastery is one of the popular heritages in Hong Kong. When we talk about Hong Kong heritage, it cannot do without Buddhist Monastery. Today I would like to introduce a Buddhist Monastery which located in Tuen Mun. I always see the Miu Fat Buddhist Monastery in my home; it's a magnificent building really.
The monastery was built in 1950 but the adjoining three-storey Ten Thousand Buddhas Pagoda, which took six years to build, was completed and enshrined in May 1980. The magnificent Main Worship Hall has a building height of about 21 metres and features three 4.8 metre tall gold-plated statues of Buddha Sakyamuni. Its interior walls are adorned with thousands of Buddha images and paintings featuring Thai and Chinese culture. The Pagoda comprises a vihara and the Court of the Jade Buddha. A 20-metre column carved with giant gold-plated dragons on both sides guards the main entrance of the pagoda. The monastery also offers vegetarian food.
The 7-storey main complex of Miu Fat Monastery is now opened. The complex is meticulously designed with Lotus Shrine on top floor resembling a gigantic crystal lotus blossom viewed from afar. Open to the public from 9am - 5pm every day.
Address: 18 Castle Peak Road, Lam Tei, Tuen Mun, New Territeries
