About Nan Lian Garden

 

Nan Lian Garden (南蓮園池) is situated at Diamond Hill, Kowloon, Hong Kong. The Garden is a designated public park, with an area of 3.5 hectares, which opened to the public in November 2006. It is built in the classical style of the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), on the blueprint of Jiangshouju, the only Tang landscape garden the original layout of which can still be placed and traced today, and the shape of which bears a significant resemblance to the Garden site. Hills and rocks, waters, plants and timber structures are built and arranged according to classical Tang style and rules, accommodating the local environment, and the best view of the sprawling mountain range to the north is taken as the seamless backdrop.
