The nunnery is placed within the Nan Ning gardens, which are beautiful. It is amazing to have this serene and very traditional space within such a dense city. The gardens are beautiful any time of the year, including the winter. Don't forget to try the teahouse that's located in the garden.

A quiet and hidden little spot in Hong Kong well worth finding. Great for a quiet walk or moment to reflect. They do have a few restrictions though regarding noise and what you can and cannot do there so just be informed.

Nunnery built by by administration. Astonishing, amazing use any complementary word it will still be less. Built with Ebony type wood finish a Buddhist nunnery. Must must see location. So spiritual and grand location. Artisans who built it and the administration that conceived it is worthy of praise from all across the world. Please go and visit if you are... More

Serene and peaceful. Don't miss the nutritious vegan lunch. Right across the Nan Lian Garden. Good place to buy souvenirs.

Just five minuts away Diamond Hill MTR station (Kwun Tong (green) line) you can find this beautiful temple, devoted to Buddha and other deities. The building, made out of wood in the Japanese style without nails, consists of a gallery enclosing a courtyard which gives way to the temple itself. There are huge statues of Buddha in bronze, fountains with... More

MTR to Diamond Hill exit C2, no more than 300m from the exit of the MTR. The nunnery and gardens are pretty much one entity. It is exceptional inside and I would say it is a must for anyone visiting Hong Kong. The display in the Main Hall at the Nunnery is breathtaking and the overall feel in both of... More

I recommend read all inscriptions at the prayer's hall -inside and outside-. The place it's beautiful itself, but if you discover the enlightenment of each Buddha thoughts, place get a greater beauty. Believe me.

Given its proximity to motorways and high-rise flats, I was amazed at just how peaceful it is when you get inside. I've been several times now, and on occasions when its very busy the tranquility of the zen gardens is somewhat lost, but if you avoid public holidays and weekends this place will be a nice break from the hectic...
