A friend of mine recommended to go and visit this place. I am not a practicing buddhist but I am surprised that there is a certain calmness of mind during meditation inside the nunnery. There are also some rock artifacts and plants showcased upon entering where there are philosophy/quotation on it. There is also a nearby park. It is easy to find this place. Must try!

Been there many times while living in HK and now when visiting. Worth the visit! Peaceful and beautiful, but can get very busy and crowded on Sundays, so keep that in mind.

Oddly enough, situated directly opposite Plaza Hollywood.

Well, I thought it was an interesting juxtaposition.

This nunnery is quite far away from the crowd and the noise of the most touristic places in HK, it surely worths a visit if you’re visiting this part of China which is not “China”. That day the sky was a bit cloudy, I’m sure if you will visit it during a sunny day (hopefully not too hot!) you will have an even better experience!

The garden and nunnery are a beautiful place to calm down, relax and meditate. It is artificial, yet full of the beauty of nature. Tacked in a residential area it make one appreciate it even more.
, A wonderful place to experience the spirit of Buddhism and serenity.

What a sanctuary in the middle of Kowloon, very clean and quite a fascinating architecture. Worth a visit if you got 2-3 spare.

Is a must visit when coming to Hong Kong.
So spectacular so peaceful and so much history behind this. My dad helped built and designed this including the history of all kinds of wood used and it’s transportation.

Staff were very helpful.

So glad we took our kids and their friends there

Such an iconic place to me.

This is an interesting, restful and beautiful place to rest and walk, and the vegetarian restaurant is so good that even I (a meat lover) can't resist stopping for a meal, partly due to the waterfall vista from within

It’s peaceful, big, impressive, and calming. Lovely. Beautifully done with the Bonsai, pond, rocks matched with quotes. My only suggestion is to have ages listed for the bonsai, and to list where the rocks came from.

This is a Hong Kong Treasure. Although the architecture is totally fake/made of cement, it's done with pure heart and it *is* a beautiful garden. I have trouble believing any nuns actually live there (that is probably who they took over the park from?) but the vegetarian food is *EXCELLENT* and so cheap for large groups. The only problem is the extremely bright overhead lighting, but they are probably following gov't regulations b/c make no mistake about it: this is a gov't run restaurant.
