China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Chi Lin Nunnery in Diamond Hill, was founded in the 1930s but was completely rebuilt in 2000. Built using the traditional architectural techniques of the Tang dynasty, no nails were used during construction and the grand timber Buddhist halls are held together by wooden brackets and dowelling. Covering a space of 30,000 square meters, Chi Lin Nunnery has strikingly beautiful statues of the Sakyamuni Buddha, the goddess of mercy Guanyin and other bodhisattvas.These statues are made from gold, clay, wood and stone.
Chi Lin Nunnery justifiably so, enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers, and is one of the most visited place.
