Ching Leung Nunnery in Fu Tei of Tuen Mun was first built in 1912. This Buddhist monastery was initially called the Garden of Sweet-scented Osmanthus because Osmanthus could be seen almost everywhere in the area prior to the New Town Development in Tuen Mun.

Important structures in the Nunnery include Ching Yan Siu Chok built in around 1913 and Fat Din built in 1928. Both buildings are a mixture of Western and Chinese styles. Ching Yan Siu Chok and Fat Din were rated Grade 3 historic buildings in 2010.

Ching Leung Nunnery is also a must-go place for savouring vegetarian meals.
