The Chi Lin Nunnery is a Buddhist temple complex on Diamond Hill in Hong Kong. It is regarded as one of the most majestic looking religious shrines in the country that combines exquisite wooden architecture, exquisite flora and greenery with the serene chanting of the nuns.
The architecture of Chi Lin Nunnery is reminiscent of the Tang Dynasty style, a distinguishing feature being that it was built without using any nails. The nunnery has unique temple halls for different purposes flanked around with the ever so immaculate corridors and courtyards along with intricate wooden carvings and stunning goldwork.
Opposite the Chi Lin Nunnery is the famous Nan Lian Garden, built in the same architectural style to compliment the beautiful temple complex. Both of these attractions can be visited free of cost.
