Hong Kong's Nan Lian Garden

The Nan Lian Garden a Classical Chinese garden of 3.5 hectares (8.6 acres) opened in 2006 as a joint project of the Hong Kong Government and the Chi Lin Nunnery across the street.  The garden is designed in the Tang Dynasty style with hills, water features, trees, rocks,and wooden structures.

I enter and find a wonderland.

Near the entrance, a gallery displays models of Chinese timber architecture.

The center of the park has a lake with a pagoda on an island in the middle and a function hall.

The paths are beautifully designed to meander through floral and rock gardens.


The park's Rockery has a display of petrified rocks inside and a Bonsai tree presentation outside.
