A delightfully ornate and well manicured respite from the hustles and bustle of Hong Kong. Soak up the rich cultural heritage and buddhist temples and walk around the scenic gardens before heading back down to the hustle and bustle of Kowloon.

Some areas are shut off and limited to the live-in monks. Photography of temple interirors is restricted. Souvenir shop and vegetarian restaurant are available. Well worth a visit. Also handy...

This is a perfect place to escape the busy streets of Kowloon. Adjacent to Nan Lian Garden, I was surprised to find this place empty. If you only have few hours to spare for sightseeing, don't miss this place.

An oasis in an otherwise frantic city. Nice gardens and ponds. Interesting museum displays and a gift shop that was quite appealing. I didn't expect to like the place, but it was well worrth the trip.

The landscape is so elegant and gives a calming effect. The tall buildings on the background contrasting the area make it more interesting. A must visit!

This is the most light and peaceful place in the city, full of peace and spirituality. Beautiful architecture and the lack of tourists - particularly striking in such a crowded city. We spent wonderful hours in meditation and contemplation courtyard.
