Tsz Shan Monastery is a large Buddhist temple located in Tung Tsz, Tai Po District. It consists of grand Tang-style buildings nestled against the quiet environment of the Pat Sin Range overlooking the Plover Cove Reservoir. It covers an area of about 500,000 square feet. It is constructed by the Li Ka-shing Foundation for more than ten years. As of 2019, Mr Li Ka-shing contributed over HK$3 billion to cover the development costs and operating expenses.
The core of Tsz Shan Temple include:
A 76-metre-high (equivalent to about 25 storeys) outdoor bronze and alloy Ruyilun Guanyin statue in white, the second tallest in the world. The statue holds a water vase in her left hand and a cintamani gem in her right hand.
An 18-metre-high Main Buddha Hall covers an area of about 1,027 square metres: it enshrines the Buddha Shakyamuni, the Medicine Buddha and the Amitabha, with a golden lotus canopy on top of the Buddha.
A Guanyin Hall covering an area of about 333 square metres.
It was officially opened to the public in April 2015.
