A beautiful and serene working nunnery. A lovely serene place, you feel a million mils from the busy roads around the corner. Not a visit that would take a few (unless you are worshiping) but a really lovely place.

I liked the nunnery, and loved the garden. Interesting, but little interpretive signage in English. The exhibit in the garden on construction techniques helps you appreciate the lack of any nails

Peaceful and beautiful place to be without the usual crowds. I loved the current Bonsai and Pottery exhibits.

When in Nan Lian Garden we watched a video on how the Nunnery was built, and all the different types of wood, joints, beams and roof etc. As with the Garden, quiet, tranquil and interesting

We were recommended by a friend to make the visit here and it certainly didn't disappoint. The timber buildings and structures are absolutely fantastic and a marvel that they do not have any nails, screws etc to hold it all together. It's absolutely immaculate. The...More

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.

No, it only opens for lunch and dinner everyday. For the 1st and 15th day of Chinese lunar calendar, it will be very crowded and unlikely to get a table. Pre booking will be helpful.
