You can see that it's raining again
Getting to Lantau Island can be via car/bus or ferry.
We chose the former; since bus is easily accessible although it was initially hard in this wet season.
Lucky for us, we got there early in the morning
Still drizzling...and the skies are all misty
Inside the temple
Very intricate ceiling tiles
There is a cafeteria nearby which serves vegetarian food...
It was still really early; and there were only kueh (light local delicacies)
Very nice selection; the kueh are really unique:)
Jelly based; and the taste was really memorable!
The main square leading to the main temple
Somehow it reminds me of Shaolin Temple:D
The main attraction in Lantau Island....the Giant Buddha
The view from the top
The view was really amazing from the top!
Around the temple
The temple faces all the greens...hills, valleys
GREAT for morning view...breathtaking and unpolluted!!
Coincidentally, we bumped into a team of filmmakers; they were pretty apologetic when asking for our permission to allow them a couple more minutes for filming before we proceed to the Giant Buddha concourse area
Back at the foot of the flight of stairs to the Giant Buddha
Leading to another unique place..the Sutra Path
A quiet little path leading to the Sutra
It was a 20-30 minutes walk to the Sutra
And we were there!
Beautiful green hill facing the Sutra
The famous Sutra featured in Hong Kong series
This is the sutra that explains it all...
