We've just come back from a visit to Hong Kong having lived there a good few years ago and it was trip advisor that persuaded us to visit the Chi Lin Nunnery.
What a delight....Most surprisingly there is no admission charge and it would be fair to say that everything about it was exquisite. The buildings, the gardens, the general layout and the peacefulness really takes one by surprise. Whilst the inside of the buildings were a photographic no-go area, there was more than enough outside to take pictures of and to treasure from the visit.
Go early during the week and avoid any potential crowds,,,,,,,,,,,,,,a real gem of a place for which you will not be let down. A short walk from Diamond Hill MTR.

A very nice retreat from the concrete jungle and busy city, worth the trip, the neighbouring gardens are a treat.

the amazing thing about this place is that it completely locks out the hustle and bustle of the city and it is located right in the middle of a neighbourhood where tons of cars and taxis (honking away)... the serenity and intricate design were just breathtaking

This place is beautiful! I found it really atmospheric, they play background music which gives a really eerie feel, really enjoyed my visit.
