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.

We've now been twice and all the family loved it. Whenever we have visitors we will be returning. The artefacts, buildings and grounds were beautiful and we all learnt lots. Great cafe too.

Wow! Here is a temple with a very calming feeling, great vegetarian food in their little restaurant and lovely gardens to walk in. The interior of the temple is remarkable too, and definitely gives one the feeling of being in Asia.
