Owner description: 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.

I always wanted to visit this temple, just made a special trip and was really glad I did. Make time and don't drive past as I had done so many times

“Amazing!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

We came across the temple randomly and decided to stop in and take a look. Firstly I have to say that it was amazingly beautiful. Secondly, the peace that you feel just being there is overwhelming. I have never felt anything like it before! It took my breath away. I loved it and highly recomend.

“Tranquil setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

nan Tien Temple is worth a visit with beautiful grounds and museum, the temples themselves are outstanding and I feel you will be in awe of your surroundings. There is also a vegetarian buffet which is good value and a descent tea shop should need refreshments.

“As good as any temple in Asia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Enormous temple, staff were friendly, easy to walk around. Plenty of eateries and clean toilets and only the cost of a donation!

“Nice and peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

A beautiful and peaceful temple just 30 minutes off the city.
The drive is a nice experience too.
A calm place to meditate and with nice views around.
The architecture is simply breath taking.
Will definitely visit again if traveled to New South Wales.
