Ten Thousand Buddhas

Finally went out to one of the remaining touristy attractions in HK. Sally and I went out to the Ten Thousand Buddha Monastery in Shatin. It's just up the hill from the mall with Ikea. I used to go out there all the time to buy stuff from Ikea but never made it up to this hill. There were lots of statues of monks all along the walk up. I imagine that it must have been a relatively quiet place tucked away in this hill when it was first built. Now residential and commercial developments have crept closer and closer.
