When Hong Kong tycoon Li Ka-shing gets involved in a project, you can bet it’ll be worthy of the superlatives that will inevitably be used to describe it. The latest to be unveiled is a foray into cultural philanthropy that’s been 16 years in the making: the Buddhist Art Museum, located within the sprawling but peaceful four-year-old Tsz Shan Monastery in Tai Po, and the first of its kind in Hong Kong. The HK$3 billion museum houses a wealth of other rare artefacts, including scrolls and over 100 statues, some of which are from Li’s private collection. The monastery even has five bulletproof VIP rooms for hosting local and foreign dignitaries.
