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.

Beautiful place with pure religion I would love to be there to pray every year. Public transports and driving all reach conveniently. Please be noticed that the temple is closed on Mondays, but opens 9am-5pm Tuesdays-Sundays. Don't hesitate to visit.

I had looked forward to visiting the Temple but was saddened to find it appeared to be more like Disney. The beauty in the surrounding gardens was stunning but, it reminded me of the Temple were Jesus threw out the money lenders. There is a Temple in the Lake District in the UK which very serene and this was what... More

Brilliant - a fantastic day wandering around this wonderful temple, outbuildings and garden. No admission fee, and food is very authentic, wonderful and very reasonably priced. So glad we stumbled on this little gem.

this was an unexpected gem, went for a conference and the facilities were the best i have experienced, desks surrounded the room in tiers with microphones at every 4th place, the monks and nuns were an unobtrusive presence, the grounds are spectacular with walking paths everywhere with surprise landscaping and sculptures around each bend, the food was delicious, i did...

The decor, gentle atmosphere and surrounding grandure of Nan Tien was outstanding. Even better was the quality of the vegetarian dishes served. I felt very "healthy" eating there. I am not vegetarian but loved every mouthful. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant for a unique and good experience.

We have been here years ago but the gardens are far more established now and it is simply beautiful. It could be likened to 'an oasis in the desert' only its a sanctuary right in the middle of a dreadful industrial area.....BUT, once in you would never know! We will come again just to take some time out and relax.

I visited the temple several months ago and it very interesting. The temple itself is a very spiritual place with monks praying and guiding people around the site explaining there way of life. They sell food from their country if you get peckish along the way. All in all a good day out.
