PLACES – Chi Lin Nunnery & Nan Lian Gardens

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.
