Miu Fat Monastery in Lam Tei, due north of Tuen Mun town centre, is one of the most eye-catching Buddhist complexes in the territory. Wander through the peaceful rock garden to find two stone lions and two stone elephants guarding the entrance. Inside you'll find a golden likeness of Buddha and three larger statues of Lord Gautama. You can't miss the soaring new extension, a 45m tower resembling a huge crystal lotus blossom. Unsurprisingly, the structure glows at night.

This is an active monastery; you’ll see brown-robed nuns in droves. To get here take Light Rail line 751 from the Tuen Mun or Town Centre stops to Lam Tei station. The complex is on the opposite side of Castle Peak Rd; cross over the walkway and walk north 150m. Bus 63X, from the Mong Kok MTR station, also stops in front of the monastery.
