Alongside the Nan Lian gardens the Nunnery is well worth visiting. Enjoy the peace, leaving the hectic pace behind. You may even be rewarded by catching a fleeting glimpse of one of the nuns.

Nice piece of architecture. Bonsai gardens & lotus pool. Next to Nan Lian garden. The sky scrapers form the backdrop to this quaint place.

Pros: stunning traditional Chinese architecture, tranquil environment to get away from the hustle and bustle, convenient location (especially if you are visiting Wong Tai Sin and/ or Nan Lian Garden), free. Cons: small (finished walking about in about 20 minutes), having a guide to explain things would be alot more informative about the history and architecture of the place.

It's a natural visit if you walk through Nan Liang Garden. A more respectful place, so even more peaceful. It's also inspiring in that there's an old age care home at the top of the Nunnery.

Really nice place to take overseas visitors who want to experience old Chinese architecture. Amazing gardens, special rocks from China. Should have a guide to explain things as you go around the gardens to appreciate everything you see. Best to go in the cooler months. Lovely vegetarian restaurant on the grounds.

Nice to see, but not really spectacular. Nice to walk through but after about 10 minutes you've seen everything.

Located in Diamond Hill in Hong Kong, near to the New Terriroties and being attached to the Nan Lian Garden, which is amongst the highrise buildings and overpasses, full of trucks and cars, its hard to imagine that you are in a Nunnery and a place of such peace and prayer...The noise seems to be taken away with the air...
