Find Serenity

Smack dab in the midst of high-rise apartment buildings, you’ll find nearly 9 acres of solitude in Nan Lian Garden. Lotus ponds, scented trees and banyan groves cover this public park, landscaped according to strict regulations. Connected to the garden, you’ll encounter Chi Lin Nunnery, a temple complex whose dark wood and stone contrast with the steel and cement of the city surrounding it.
