This week's Photo Hunt is one for which I felt spoiled for choice with regards to what to pick. Alternatively put, I felt free to select a whole bunch of photographs as its theme is not only so broad but also very open to interpretation. In the end, I decided to go for a trio of photos of a beautiful place over here in Hong Kong for which entrance is free (and where, unlike with some other religious establishments (mostly, I've noticed, Taoist ones), one is free to go about taking as many photos as one would like).
The Chi Lin Nunnery is located right next to the Nan Lian Garden, some of whose rock displays I put up photos of in last week's Photo Hunt entry (and also featured in my entry for the Shiny-themed Photo Hunt as well as another entry on this blog). And just as the Nan Lian Garden is a Tang Dynasty (618-907 CE)-style garden, the Chi Lin Nunnery's architecture is meant to evoke the style of that ancient Chinese Dynasty. Something else of note is that the entire wooden structure were built without the use of a single nail in their construction! Even without knowing this fact, however, I think you'll freely agree after seeing my pictures that it's quite the aesthetically impressive establishment, right? :)
