Chi Lin Nunnery @ Kowloon, Hong Kong

Chi Lin Nunnery is located just beside Nan Lian Garden and it is near Diamond Hill MRT exit C2. This Buddhist nunnery is stunning with its monastery complex having been renovated as a piece of Tang dynasty architecture. The grand and elegant complex will surely become one of China's great cultural attractions in the years to come. There are other halls containing a treasure trove of religious relics as well as restful lotus ponds. One things that attracts me the most is the words of wisdom display on each relic. Admission to this complex is free.

Unique architecture.

Each of this building has its own Buddha figure inside.
