Chi Lin Nunnery (Chinese: 志蓮淨苑; Jyutping: zi3 lin4 zing6 jyun2; Cantonese Yale: Jilìhn Jihng Yún) is a large Buddhist temple complex located in Diamond Hill, Kowloon, Hong Kong. It was founded in 1934 as a retreat for Buddhist nuns and was rebuilt in the 1990s following the traditional Tang Dynasty architecture. The temple halls have statues of the Sakyamuni Buddha, the goddess of mercy Guanyin and other bodhisattvas. These statues are made from gold, clay, wood and stone. The temple halls and the Chinese garden in front of the nunnery are open to the public daily free of charge.

    Tranquil and beautiful garden. It’s getting busier with visitors during the weekend, specially in the afternoon and public holidays. Best to visit in the morning.
