Overview

Nan Tien is very different from most tourist attractions because there is so much to offer: the visual delights of grandeur architecture, art & culture including unique exhibitions & festivals, Buddhist festivals, vegetarian culinary delights, educational & healthy life style classes & retreats, accommodation, top class conference and auditorium facilities as well as beautiful gardens & walks. There is also the spiritual and religious experience that is unforgettable and even life changing for some.

Colourful display of Bhuddist ideology and history. An impressive temple in most unexpected places. Go for a stroll and a veggie lunch at the restaurant.

The temple is so huge and there are so many places to explorer. If you need time for self reflection, this is the place.

We enjoyed the peaceful and beautiful setting. Make sure you go above the temple for great views and ring the gratitude bell, to acknowledge the gratitude we have for our parents and ancestors.

The attraction itself was quite good. Less impressive was the treatment received by one of our party on entering the gift shop. We don’t know what our friend did wrong, but the person serving in the shop screeched at my friend and all but pushed...More
