This is a must visit in Hong Kong. I was fascinated with their Buddhist temple and how they keep them as also part of their history. Also a walking distance in Nan Lian Garden.

Easy access from MTR station. Nearby are malls should you feel like shopping. Once inside compound, you're transported to a totally different world: calming, peaceful, and beautiful. Landscaping is outstanding: different groupings of buildings and flora. You can be in a totally secluded corner all by yourself if you choose to. Lovely trees, small bridges, green lawn, and there's even... More

The Chi Lin Nunnery was one of the last things my wife and I did during our trip to Hong Kong and we were both blown away by the beauty of the place!

Next to and really on the same site as the Nan Lian Gardens, this is a tranquil place and a lovely interlude from the hustle and bustle of the city. The parts open to the public do ask that visitors are respectful and don't take photos within the main hall, you may see nuns walking around or praying and the... More

We were staying near this lovely garden so chose to wander around for an hour. It is just so peaceful amongst all the hussle & bussle of Hong Kong. Very scenic, free of charge, open from 7am. If you are in the area pop in & have a peaceful stroll...10 minute walk from Diamond Hill MTR stop.

Beautiful place. Crowded with tourists during peak hours but still worth it even then. Right next to the Nan Lian Gardens, which are also great.

It's next to the Nan Lian Gardens so well worth vising both places. It's very peaceful and beautifully kept.

Very beautiful architecture and displays in the Nunnery. Good to spend some time here to slowly stroll through the place and appreciate the arts and garden.

Chi Lin Nunnery is a must visit place in Hong Kong. I visit this place every time that I come HK. They build the place by wood and without using nail. Please don't use the noise when visiting there. Take the photo outside is ok. However, you cannot take photo inside the temple area. You can also walk to Nan... More
