If you are tired from all the shopping and eating that Hongkong has to offer, this is the place to be. It is patch of beauty & calm in the middle of skyscrapers. Beautiful Zen garden, airy temples, instagram worthy spots. Small snack shop and souvenir shops where you can get more noteworthy gifts to bring home. Best of all,... More

After coming from Sik Sik Yuen, one will find the nunnery over beside Diamond Hill eerily quiet - but no less beautiful. The Nan Lian gardens are worth checking out first, but once you are finished there step over the bridge to the large timber temple complex across the road. The outer courtyard is stunning, with small pools neatly organised... More

Located at Diamond Hill MTR, peaceful and beautiful garden.. Relaxing 2 hour walk away from the hustle and bustle of life. Worth going if not in a hurry to leave Hong Kong!

Tranquil place. Easy to get to from diamond hill mtr. Well signed. Well groomed facilities with lotus gardens and ponds. Entitled made without nails. Run female Buddhist nuns. Worth the trip. Not over crowded either with lots of room to move around.

A tranquil and beautiful place in the middle of bustling Kowloon. Slightly out of the way but worth it - easy to get to on MTR. Very meditative place. Great contrasts between old style and new.

This is located across the road from Nan Lian Gardens, and only a very short walk from Diamond Hill MTR Station. Easy to find by the street signs. Entry to both is free, and absolutely worth visiting. The buildings alone are worth seeing and they also provide a bit of information for the visitor, to help you understand what you... More

Even on a busy day this Nunnery is tranquil. Right next to the gardens it's a must see and also free.

The landscaping here is quite impressive, particularly the large bonsai trees. On the day we visited, there were very few people there, so we could thoroughly enjoy the spirituality of the temple without crowds of selfie-taking tour groups.

These beautiful buildings are set in the most serene gardens and ponds. An array of bonsai trees can be found here too. No photos allowed in the main building.
