On my second day in Hong Kong, I decided to go to one of their known gardens called the Nan Lian Garden. The hotel I stayed in was in Tsing Yi so it took me three subway trains before I reach Diamond Hill where the Nan Lian Garden is located.
There’s a hall here that shows scale models of I believe are prominent temples around China. The scale models are so detailed that it seems each pieces used here are as accurate as the ones they’re modeled for.
After strolling around the garden, I then took the stairs ascending to a Buddhist temple called Chi Lin Nunnery. When I first saw it, It looks majestic. They have these amazing courtyards with man-made ponds. The ponds have lilies and statues drooling water.
By the way, you are not allowed to take pictures of the interiors of the temple. Sadly, I saw some stubborn tourists who do otherwise. It’s like “C’mon man! Respect their temples and their rules!”
These Chinese temples are so amazing. Hoping to see more in the future 😀
Time to go, ‘Til next time 🙂
