Coupled with a visit to the Nan Lian Garden, the Chi Lin Nunnery adds to the serene and peaceful location in the middle of Hong Kong. Easy to get to, being a short signposted walk from Diamond Hill Station. There is not much to 'do', but there is some really interesting plaques with the history and general information of the nunnery.

What I like about the Chilin Nunnery is the unassuming quiet expanse of the place. It is not too big or too small. Being off the tourist path , you are assured of a solemn time for reflection , be your are a Buddhist or not. The approach through the first gate is a memorable one !

Easily reached from Diamond Hill MTR. Tranquil and stunning. Obviously very well cared for. The Buddha statues are really worth a trip.

A trip to Hong Kong is not complete without a trip to the Chi Lin Nunnery. It is connected to an area of beautiful gardens, lakes and landscaping, making it one of Hong Kong's
Local treasures!

The peacefulness and serenity that one experiences in the bustle of Hong Kong is totally unexpected and most welcome, particularly after a day hectic of touring. The Nunnery is a place of quiet and self reflection whilst a walk in the garden across the road renews and revitalises the most weary of souls. I would recommend that you visit this attraction.
