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.

Then strolled the beautiful peaceful grounds and enjoyed the tranquility of the Temple. The tea room downstairs serves the best cumquat tea I have had. Can highly recommend to both locals and visitors to the area. Well worth a... More

I really enjoyed my visit here at the end of a busy day. Very peaceful and reflective. The grounds are beautiful and the vegetarian restaurant is highly recommended - even for non-vegetarians. Well worth the drive to get here.

I visit regularly and always take my visitors. A stroll through the temple and grounds is a great experience. The walking track above the pagoda takes you to one of the best vantage points to view the local area that I know. Seating around the lotus pond allows you to enjoy the tranquility & serenity while watching the fish and... More

Me & my wife had been to this Buddhist temple. The main attractioms were the small statues near the entrance of Pagoda and the 12 pretty attractive statues of animals from calendar ! The inner beauty of main hall is marvellous ! The wish tree also looks amazing. Hope everyone's good wishes are getting fulfilled as well.

This place is worth a visit. Check out the events on their website, and if you time things right.... you might be in for a special treat. Lotus day, a particularly great time to visit, but even if nothing 'special' happening ...it's a special place to visit. Enjoy a yummy vegetarian lunch in the tea house or cafeteria. The tea...

Lovely gardens and wonderful architecture to delight the eyes. Great place to have a leisure walk and feel at peace. The kumquat tea is delicious at the small cafeteria and the vegetarian food offerings are tasty and nourishing if you're hungry. Don't forget to walk to the top of the hill and ring the big bell!

Portion-wise the food is worth it; the taste is good too! The scenery is nice; when I came it was midday-afternoon. The crowds were not disruptive; so you can enjoy the scenery. The lotus pond there is a must-see. Also there's a museum inside the gift shop and a tearoom is nearby...
