This is the peaceful place to visit one time in Hong Kong and you can pray with Buddha that make you happy and feel peace during you stay in Nunnery

A must to visit when in Hong Kong. Take the easy subway to Diamond Hill, then simply go up the escalators to the area before the mall, turn right then left and go around the outside of the mall. Cross the street to the right and head into the beautiful park first. After circling the park slowly, ascend into Chi... More

I knew it was a place to visit, however, my first visit was to the vegetarian restaurant in the evening. A very popular restaurant and it's preferably with reservation. Food was good but I would think it's a little pricey. As a tourist, I would still think it's a good place to go especially for any vegetarian/vegan.

A very nice and quite place in the middle of such a huuuge, loud and fast city! We loved the contrary to that and enjoyed some peaceful hours here.

This Buddhist monastery is quite large but easy to see in a short visit - plan to spend about 1 hour viewing the temple and gorgeous landscaping. These are smaller temples on each side of the main Buddhist temple each dedicated to a smaller god. The best part of this temple is the landscaping with water lily ponds and Bonsai... More

We were not able to snap.photos in the temple (praying area) but we were just at the garden before it. The bonsais are just magnificent! Some had flowers,some didn't. They were all different species. Saw a number of... More

A little off-track but totally worth it!! The nunnery itself is lovely and the adjoining garden is a lovely walk-through. The koi pond is so pretty!! Must visit

The nunnery has a square courtyard after entering the main gate, that is embellished with beautiful gardens and ponds full of multicolored lotuses. The main deity is a giant buddha statue, gold plated, with his disciples also making a presence by his side. Opposite the temple, on the other side of the road is a beautifully landscaped garden with pools... More
