Beautiful , stunning , peaceful , relaxing !! In the heart of this bustling metropolis chi lin nunnery and nan liang gardens opposite are worth a few hours of your time. The nunnery with its Buddhist temples are a sight to behold, we went on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon and it wasn't overly busy. Take some comfortable shoes as... More

A must-to-visit you stay in HK. The park and the pagoda are managed by the monks and, once you get in, you can immediately feel the peaceful atmosphere. It's amazing how harmonious and quiet this place is, despite located in such a big chaotic town like Hong Kong. I highly recommend to also visit the restaurant which offers a wide... More

Love that it's so easy to get to (less than 5 min walk from Diamond Hill MTR). When you go inside, it feels like you're outside the city - that's nice. Somehow, it managed to be detached from Hong Kong while it has the usual tall buildings as its backdrop. I especially enjoyed the quotes surrounding the side halls of... More

A free must-see nunery, closed to Kowloon aea. Also a great tourist place with beautiful garden, water feature, bonsais. It's also a great tourist place with the timber architect gallery inside: sightseeing, photo time, dinning... Got an awesome vegan restaurant behind the watefall. Highly recommended!.

This is one of the most amazing cultural sites I have ever visited. Sadly it's not O.K. to photograph the magnificent statues. It's not allowed because these are religious symbols. It's easy to understand but I wish I could have purchased photos. We did take a lot of lovely photos of the beautiful ponds and bonsais. Don't miss this! It... More

Nunnery is a quiet retreat, so close to a busy road. Photos within also show the Hong Kong skyline, quite a different view. If you know any background I'm sure it would be fascinating.

We visited this temple and were amazed at how quite and serene the experience was. We stepped out of the city and into another world of peaceful bliss. I would recommend you bring a guide with you to help explain the cultural and religious significance of every statue to get the most out of the experience, but even without a... More

We came here in the late morning. This nunnery has a beautiful garden, great views and is in the middle of the city. So impressive!
