Nan Lian Garden is a wonderful public park built in the ancient style of the Tan Dynasty (AD 618-907). The scenic garden is meticulously landscaped over an area of 3.5 hectares, in which every hill, rock, body of water, plant and timber structure is placed according to specific rules and methods. Open 7 am - 9 pm daily and is free.
Above the garden and connected by a bridge is the Chi Lin Nunnery, another must-see attraction in Kowloon. This magnificent wooden building underwent a multi-million dollar renovation using oly traditional wooden dowelling and brackets, and no nails. The 3.2 hectare site, comprising various Buddhist halls, is a living museum of the Tang Dynasty.
Following is a slideshow of our visit to the garden, but the Chi Lin Nunnery is not included because we ran out of time. Will post when we visit sometime later. Enjoy!
