Attractions near the Harbour Plaza North Point
The Chi Lin Nunnery
As one of the most impressive building complexes in Hong Kong, the Chi Lin Nunnery is a great attraction for all visitors to the city. Built in 1934 and renovated in the style of the Tang dynasty in 1990, the complex consists of an elegant wooden nunnery building, Chinese gardens, lotus ponds and treasured Buddhist relics.
You can wander through a series of temple halls housing statues made from gold, clay, wood and stone, which represent the Sakyamuni Buddha and bodhisattvas. There's serenity to be found among the bonsai tea plants, bougainvillea and the soft chanting of the resident nuns. A quiet place, Chi Lin Nunnery not only offers a glimpse into Hong Kong’s religious heritage, but also a chance to escape the noisy city streets.
Experiencing the majestic Big Buddha
A trip to Hong Kong isn’t complete without visiting the astonishing 34-metre-high bronze Buddha at Po Lin Monastery. Created in 1993, the Big Buddha faces north to look over the Chinese people, its right hand raised in a position that signifies a blessing to all.
The best way to experience this grand statue is to climb its 268 steps to see the details up close and catch stunning views of the mountains and sea. The Po Lin Monastery sits opposite the statue and is known for being one of Hong Kong’s most significant Buddhist sanctums. You can stroll through its charming garden, passing by vibrant Buddhist iconography on your way to the delicious vegetarian restaurant.
