Man Tien Temple is a quiet and tranquil place for contemplation and meditation. The cafe offers vegetarian fare at a more than reasonable price.

We are local and visit the Nan Tien Temple semi regularly. It's a great place to ground yourself, eat the vegetarian meals, drink soothing teas,and eat yummy dumplings. A must do is to walk to the top of the hill and dong the giant bell.

Spent a couple of hours at the temple, it was very peaceful and very interesting, particularly the information board on how the temple came about.The gardens are spectacular, with lots of interesting sculptures and beautiful manicured lawns and plants.
