Nice temple

Beautiful place. Crowded with tourists during peak hours but still worth it even then. Right next to the Nan Lian Gardens, which are also great.

It's next to the Nan Lian Gardens so well worth vising both places. It's very peaceful and beautifully kept.

Very beautiful architecture and displays in the Nunnery. Good to spend some time here to slowly stroll through the place and appreciate the arts and garden.

Chi Lin Nunnery is a must visit place in Hong Kong. I visit this place every time that I come HK. They build the place by wood and without using nail. Please don't use the noise when visiting there. Take the photo outside is ok. However, you cannot take photo inside the temple area. You can also walk to Nan... More

In the Nan Lian Gardens. This is a nice Nunnery to visit, round the back there is a large stall you can buy goods from.

I am fascinated by Buddhism and self study the religion, so I take any opportunity I get to visit a temple and learn more about it. Chi Lin Nunnery is a huge Buddhist temple in Kowloon and is a stunning example of Buddhist culture. It is open to the public and is free of charge, (something we all like to... More

We were here about a year ago but the weather was very different, cold and wet. It was still a really lovely place to visit. However the sun was shining and it was warm this time. It is so tranquil and peaceful you really don't want to leave. We have told a lot of people how fantastic this place is... More

This jewel in the heart of HK is a must see. Gardens, temples, it is all here. There is a kind of peace in front of you that defies all the towering buildings around it.

Chi Lin Nunnery is a large Buddhist temple following traditional Tang Dynasty architecture. Beautiful, indeed, and it also has a serene accompanying garden to stroll around. It's an active monastery and there are a number of activities and services Buddhists can take part in. I went to a retreat several years back held there by dharma drum mountain Buddhist society...
