A lovely little corner of Hong-Kong filled with peace & tranquility away from the crowds & noise of the city. Lots of space & not overly crowded during the week.
Is easy to get to by metro and just a little walk after coming out of it. Wonderful to see that such a place can be amidst all the tower blocks and busy roads. Another place where you could spend time in relaxing and walking around happy you have done so. So beautiful that we took so many photos .... More
I am always amazed at our international adventures because there are such peaceful and beautiful places that cities have just built around. We saw it recently when we were in Japan, especially Kyoto and now in Hong Kong. The Chi Lin Nunnery is surrounded by expressways and high rises and it is such beauty. We will definitely come back again.... More
We decided to visit this place to get out of the city for a few hours. It's easy to get to by MTR, free to enter, and such a peaceful place to be. There are quite a few golden Buddha statues - quite lovely. But the gardens are what impressed me most - so beautiful. There are a LOT of... More

The serenity that you will be looking for is difficult to find here. The monastry is most probably hidden behind the walls as we could not find it. The traditional music comes from speakers. The place as such however is well maintained with beautiful ponds and flowers.
Well worth a visit, understated in a number of ways.....it was peaceful, scenic, well maintained and one of the cultural musts of Hong Kong, The buildings were amazing in detail and make you wonder how something as beautiful as this place could exist in a city of this magnitude. Stunning !
Location : hardly ten minutes walk from the MTR and 3-4 mins walk from Nan Lian Garden. Time required to cover Chi Lin Nunnery is 40 Mins. Its amazing work all around in Chi Lin Nunnery, what a beautiful architecture, big golden buddhas, ponds, lotus. Only one negative things that they do not allow to take the photos of all... More
