The Po Lin Monastery nestled in the foothills of the Ngong Ping Plateau on a foggy day.
Previously a humble mountain monastery, accessible only by a rugged forest clad trail, it sky rocketed to the world stage upon the completion of the Tian Tan Buddha. Although it is now accessible by cable car, and visited by millions annually, the Po Lin Monastery is still rustic in its intimacy. Despite being one of Hong Kong’s most important Buddhist sanctums, its pine tree lined paths, needles dripping with moisture from the low-hanging fog, and its breath taking views of where the Zhujiang River meets the South China Sea, would leave a deep impression on anyone
The mountain peak in the background of the photograph is Lantau Peak, the highest on the island and the second highest in Hong Kong.
