|The gate of Chi Lin Nunnery|
Situated at Diamond Hill in Kowloon, The Chi Lin Nunnery is an old structure founded in 1934 and rebuilt in 1990 following the style of Tang Dynasty traditional architecture.
Although Chi Lin Nunnery is mainly a Buddhist temple, and as it is, a nunnery, it is open to the public to showcase the fine Chinese art and culture. It boasts of its serene gardens, ponds and serves as an outdoor museum to present Tang Dynasty's unique and beautiful style of architecture.
