Over Labor Day weekend, I took a whirlwind trip to Hong Kong.
The highlight of my trip was a visit to the Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden, located in the Diamond Hill Section of Kowloon.
I found my way there without too much difficulty using Hong Kong’s MTR subway system.
CHI LIN NUNNERY
The Chi Lin Nunnery is a beautiful large Buddhist Temple complex, founded in 1934 (and rebuilt in the 1990s) as a retreat for Buddhist nuns. The style is traditional Tang Dynasty architecture.
NAN LIAN GARDEN
The Nan Lian Garden is located adjacent to the Chi Lin Nunnery. It is a classical Chinese Garden also built in the style of the Tang dynasty. I was awestruck by the beauty of this garden.
