Nan Tien Temple

Nan Tien Temple – Wollongong

Nan Tien Temple which carry the meaning by “Southern Heaven Temple” is a Buddhist Temple complex located in Berkeley on the southern outskirts of the Australian city of Wollongong, about 80 km south of Sydney. It is one of the branch temples of the Taiwanese Fo Guang Shan Buddhist order, founded in 1967 by Hsing Yun,  which has over 120 branches worldwide. The temple is one of the largest Buddhist temples in the southern hemisphere, completed in 1995 (source wiki).

It was Chinese new Year Week 2018 and we decided to came to this temple to visit. There’s many people visiting on weekend though the tour buses and the car park was full when we arrives but we manage to find a parking anyway. Please scroll down to see the photo’s.

The area is so big so make sure you are fit to walk. There is a reputable vegetarian restaurant here but we did not manage to eat there because too many people was queuing and we do not want to wait. This is a good place to visit especially if you’re a Buddhist, you can  pray here.
