Found peace when I visited Po Lin Monastery

The remote Po Lin Monastery, hidden away by lush mountains, became a popular attraction when the extraordinary Tian Tan Buddha statue (informally known as the Big Buddha) was erected in 1993.

Opposite the statue, the Po Lin Monastery is one of Hong Kong’s most important Buddhist sanctums and has been dubbed ‘the Buddhist World in the South’. Home to many a devout monk, this monastery is rich with colorful manifestations of Buddhist iconography and its pleasant garden is alive with birdsong and flowery scents. ❤ The place is so peaceful that you almost get lost in tranquility. You can also enjoy a meal at its popular vegetarian restaurant that offers mouth watering dishes to food lovers.

It’s an indeed a must place to visit.
