“Chin Lin Nunnery is a haven of Zen-like simplicity and meditation.”

– Michelin Guide

"Reconstructed in the 1990s in the style of Tang dynasty monastic architecture (A.D. 618-907), the nunnery is an amazing union of ancient building techniques and modern technology." Full review
"Not a single nail was used to build this nunnery... wooden dowels and bracket work hold everything together." Full review
Be sure to keep looking up—the latticework ceilings and complicated beam systems are among the most beautiful parts of the building.

"A tranquil oasis in the middle of Hong Kong with exquisite gardens and temples, this was crafted just 14 years ago without the use of nails or any other intrusive metal fastening devices." Full review
