Cutting through Diamond Hill’s myriad of high-rise buildings is the tranquil Nan Lian Garden, a meticulously landscaped Chinese Classical Garden and public park.
Located in the Diamond Hill area, Nan Lian Garden is built in the Tang Dynasty style and occupies an area of about 35,000 square meters (3.5 hectares). Every rock, hill, body of water, trees, and timber structure has been placed according to specific rules and method of Tang style. The garden is designed in a one-way circular route manner. By following this route visitors will see two water ponds (the Lotus Pond and the Blue Pond), a lot of trees, the Pavilion of Absolute Perfection connected by two Zi Wu Bridges, the Chinese Timber Architecture Gallery, the Pine Path, a souvenir shop, a vegetarian food restaurant, a Chinese tea house, and a multi-purpose function room.
In addition, Nan Lian Garden is adjacent to the Chi Lin Nunnery by a bridge and is surrounded by the high-rise buildings. Together with the Nunnery they form one of the most impressive sites in Hong Kong.
