This is the signage at Lam Kam Road (林錦公路).


Built in the Ming Dynasty (1822), Ling Wan Monastery used to be known as “Ling Wan Practicing Hall” (凌雲靜室). It has a history of 193 years in 2015. It is said to be one of three oldest monasteries in Hong Kong, the others are Po Lin Monastery (寶蓮禪寺) and Castle Peak Monastery (青山禪院).

The monastery was built by TANG Hung-yee, the son of a prominent family of Kam Tin, for his mother to practice Buddhism. Outside the monastery, trees and flowers combine to create an idyllic picture. It was therefore originally a place of practicing by the prominent family.


This is the main entrance.

It is said that the monastery has been repainted not long before.



There is a Guan Yin (Kun Yam) in the middle of lotus pond.


It is not expected the monastery has such a long history of nearly 200 years. There are eight full-time followers in the monastery. It is a lovely and calm place to stay for an hour. Since no vegetarian meal is served, the monastery is not always crowded. If you have more visitors at the same time, there will be tour guide to introduce the monastery.
