In the middle of the city, this respite from commercialism and concrete is the place to be for a 1/2 day "off". The temples and grounds are gorgeous and the Gardens to which it is attached are calming.

Beautiful small temple hidden in Kowloon with great gardens. Very peaceful and not as busy as some others I have been to. Very helpful staff around who were keen to share their knowledge which just added to the whole experience

A must see in Hong Kong. This nunnery is beautifully constructed around a courtyard with immaculate gardens. It is a little oasis of calm in a hectic city. Make sure to visit the Nan Lee gardens across the road as well. Both are free to visit.

I have to say firstly, this place is a complete sanctuary tucked into a really busy neighborhood in Hong Kong in Diamond Hill by a huge mall!

This place which is located behind a Mall in Diamond Hill is beautiful. Loved the serene ambience. Interesting architecture and lily pond/gardens to view. They also have a couple of gift shops and vegetarian restaurants. Tried one vege restaurant which is nice if you like Chinese vege food otherwise, it is an acquired taste.

Great place for photos and to spend some time to have some quiet time. You cannot take any photos of the buddahs, but there are lots of signs about what each Buddha is for. From here, go across the foot bridge to the nan lin gardens for more photo opportunities.
