Nan Tien Temple, Wollongong Reviews
Serenity. Peacefulness. A must visit. Very kind and respectful staff assist you in anyway to know about the history and more. A wonderful tea stall providing with an assortment of cultural foods like hot noodles and burdock tea. People of all backgrounds are welcome here. Just be respectful and mantain the sanctity, and you'll have a wonderful experience. The silence is amazing.
Listed as the largest Buddhist temple in the southern hemisphere, this site definitely offers some pretty sites. It would be easy to rush through or spend a couple of hours there. Of course, depending on how interested you are. Weekends often have interactive activities, music and stalls but still maintain a quiet reverence. It is great for photography too if you're that way inclined. A great site that offers some eastern culture to an otherwise westernized wollongong
One of the richest and we'll maintained japanese Chinese Buddhist temple. Huge temple and very big area. Very well maintained. Many mediation courses are conducted there among this weekend retreat is very popular. Temple has own University affiliated to many colleges in Sydney where social and spiritual degree programs are conducted. I got an opportunity to join half an hour mediation session. Very calm cool and peaceful. Those who are looking to calm down or disturbed must try this.
Very nice place. You can go in the temple but you will need to take shoes and hat off. Lots of beuitiful sculptures every where. Picnics are not allowed. Public toilets are available on level 3 from a lift in the restaurant. Lots of parking.. wear comfortable shoes as you have to go up and down lots of stairs.
I love this place Tranquility is hard to find but at this place you can get it .... Beautifully layed out gardens. KOI fish ponds with Lilly pads, frogs and all. Nice place to walk around and a nice place to sit and chill. Go to the top of the hill and ring the gong. Check out the tower while you are up there. All the buildings are well built in traditional ancient Chinese style. So there is a bit to see here as you walk around ... Lovely manicured gardens, stone carvings and stone statues and nice shady places to sit down and take it all in.
