Interesting and calm place to visit in the heat. Easy to get to by transit. It is a new structure and seems a bit showy. It doesn't have the atmosphere of older temples. There are beautiful gardens.

I visited Chi Lin Nunnery in 2004 for the first time. Went there again in February this year with friends from France. I was so impressed. The place is just as beautiful as before. The tree and plants have grown so much and are awesome....More

Beside the Garden next door, the buildings and the Budda are amazing. Must see to believe. So well kept and maintained garden and grounds.

Combined with the gardens this makes a nice stop in an otherwise busy city. Lovely lotus ponds and cute gift shop although the shop in the gardens and a better range of higher end items. Enter though gardens, well sign posted from diamond hill stop.

Your visit to Hong Kong is incomplete without visiting Chi Lin Nunnery. Simply divine temple in the midst of HK's concrete jungle. Right outside Diamond Hill station. Forget everything else in HK and spend an hour here. So tranquil, so heavenly.

I loved my visit here. The buildings are in excellent condition, and the courtyards are serene and beautiful. I walked through twice, I liked it so much. Well worth the time.

We really liked the information on how temples are built and enjoyed the calm and scenic look round the temple and adjoining gardens. I’m sure staff bills are extortionate as they are posted everywhere and watch you constantly which was unnerving and could be annoying...More

This is one of the most relaxing place in Hong Kong. Just imagine a beautiful temple/garden/lake in the middle of a frenetic city surrounded by tall buildings. The MTR is very close and only take a couple of hours to visit this place. Cheers

I think it’s Diamond Hill. An easy walk from there. It’s pretty well signed.

just go to Diamond Hill and actually there a small sign to Nan Lian Garden (via Plaza Hollywood). you can enter the Nan Lian Garden first. from there theres actually a bridge that connect directly to the Chi Lin Nunnery.
