PLACES – Chi Lin Nunnery & Nan Lian Gardens 1

Chi Lin Nunnery and neighbouring Nan Lian Gardens rank 4th and 8th place respectively on TripAdvisor’s top 400 local attractions. 

Yet the sites, which are within walking distance of Diamond Hill MTR (Exit C), remain curiously off the radar for many Hong Kongers.

The nunnery is a large 33,000 square metre Buddhist temple complex founded in 1934 and rebuilt in the 90s.
