Overview
More
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.

The temple is impressive and worth seeing. Even the gardens are worth a walk around. The café is wonderful and serves a variety of vegetarian yummy food. The downside is the stairs. They are a challenge for the less mobile.

Still a very tranquil Buddist Temple to visit we spent 3 hours here just marvelling at the peace and quiet, as it was Spring time the gardens were glorious. We ended our visit with a chai latte in the cafe

Very limited menu mainly noodles. Menu old and torn and dirty. Seating leaves something to be desired. Won't recommend. But the temple itself and gardens are very nice.

A Buddhist temple, peaceful and serene place to visit, a good stroll around the temple ground with good views. A good place to visit if you would like to experience some serenity.
