Tsz Temple completed its construction and opened to public visitors in April 2015, led by the Venerable Kok Kwong HHCKLA. Much of the monastery building funds were donated by local business magnate Li Ka-shing.
As a Chinese Buddhist monastery established for the inheritance of the teaching of the Buddha, Tsz Shan Monastery is a sanctuary for the purpose of spiritual purification, and endeavours to open the door to compassion and wisdom for the public through various activities.
The general public is required to make an appointment through phone or internet beforehand for a visit to the Tsz Shan Monastery. The daily quota for visitors is limited to 400 at initial stage. During the test run only visitation requests from local non-profit organizations, registered charities, and funded welfare agencies were accepted, but as of 2017 reservations are taken from the general public as well.

Beautiful Buddhist temple to visit. Opened a few years ago and there are many highlights to see in particular the Goddess of Mercy statue. Awesome. What makes the temple so unique is one is only allowed to visit once you have a confirmed booking made online. It feels never overcrowded. Must see when you are in HK
One must have reservation in order to visit this monastery. This is a way to control crowd size and to ensure visitors will have a chance to experience the peace and tranquility that the place was designed for. I do not know fully about the story behind this place. But even without that knowledge it was quite a special experience to gaze upon the giant Guanyi statue, and to see and feel the peacefulness the entire site would bring. The place is pristine, peaceful, and modern in some areas. Reservation can be made on their website.
