UMAA(HK) - Visit to Tsz Shan Monastery
Post date: 15-Feb-2017 06:45:06
About Tsz Shan Monastery:
To visit Tsz Shan Monastery from the city, you are struck by a sense of calmness – both in the natural environment and in the atmosphere of the majestic monastery. Its style is inspired by the more solemn and elegant styles of the Tang, Northern Song, Liao and Jin dynasties, which existed over a period of about 600 years beginning in the 7th century.
The monastery appropriates elements of nature in its planning as well. Tsz Shan Monastery is located on a hilly site with an expansive sea view to the front. The core of the monastery consists of three main buildings placed along a central axis. Each building and associated courtyard is placed on platforms rising up the hill, well defined with surrounding corridors. On another axis branching off from the Grand Courtyard, devotees are led into the presence of the colossal image of Guan Yin, passing the Universal Gate Hall.
The idea for the development of Tsz Shan Monastery germinated with Mr. Li Ka-shing, who as of 2016 has contributed over HK$2 billion from his personal Foundation to cover the development and daily operating costs of the Monastery.
