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.

Excellent. Book a tour. Not very expensive and includes a small lunch. Our tour was at 11.30. Stunning views of the escarpment from up on top of the hill. Peaceful. The cafe now serves coffee. Have a look for yourself. Go go go. Plenty of parking but does get busy. Get there early.

Called in here with my husband to 'just check this place out'. We were there for hours! A beautiful, tranquil place with amazing architecture and stunning decor. The gardens are lush and appealing, even in the middle of winter. Definitely check out the Museum, and see the engravings that have been etched on a single strand of hair. Mind blowing!... More

I love visiting the Temple it is so peaceful, inside and incredibly interesting. Food, although vegetarian, is very good and reasonably priced, service is good and overall very clean and hospitable.

My husband and stopped by the Nan Tien Temple for lunch on our trip to Australia. Lunch was very good and well priced. The temple and the grounds are lovely and very peaceful. We spent a very pleasant afternoon walking around and taking pictures of the gardens.

So peaceful, quiet, relaxing and stunning prayer halls. Beautiful grounds, great gardens - easy to get to (just off the freeway). Also a small café (vegetarian) and everyone so lovely to talk with. Word of warning - don't wear shoes with laces - as when you go through each prayer hall - you have to be respectful and take your... More

Although we're living in Thailand among many buddhist temples, visiting Nan Tien Temple is still my recommendation for all people to visit once in a lifetime. You will feel peaceful, relaxed and fulfilled while staying here. The Buddha Image in the main shrine is gorgeous. Photo taking inside all shrines is prohibited so be ready to keep all moments in...
