"Chi Lin Nunnery" New Territories Tip by clairegeordio
New Territories, Hong Kong: 38 reviews and 90 photos
This Buddhist nunnery, in Diamond Hill was founded in the 1930's but reopened in the year 2000 and is a replica from the Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907)
Apparently not one nail was used in it's construction! Instead they used interlocking pieces of wood.
There are some beautiful lotus ponds in front of the Nunnery. It is quite an unusual sight with the backdrop of skyscrapers behind. It is worth a visit, especially if you are visiting the Wong Tai Sin temple, as that is only 1 MTR stop away from the Chi Lin Nunnery.
Open: Thurs-Tues 9am-3:30pm Free admission
