Overview

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.

What a beautiful place to visit for a few hours. The temples are interesting along with the museum and the grounds are well worth taking a healthy walk around. The cafe is reasonable and the vegetarian food will suit most palates.

A great beautiful place to take the family, go for a walk of the whole grounds and make sure you see all the fish ponds. Tips - make sure you wear conservative clothing, no singlets or shorts Cafe is vegetarian

From the start, driving into the grounds, the beauty starts. Everywhere you look there are beautiful gardens and lawns with little Buddah's everywhere. I was extremely impressed with the Temple and Tower. what a beautiful place to visit.

Nice stop after the coastal drive down from Sydney. Beautiful gardens. Some tourists from certain countries where loud and noisy and completely ignorant thus disturbing the peace but once that group moved away we could enjoy our visit.

Very commercial with quite rude people who only seem to care about making a buck which is sad because buildings and grounds are beautiful.

There was no cost to visit the Temple. If you wish to make a donation there was one box we saw in the whole place. It is very serene
