Fo Guang Shan Nan Tien Temple

180 Berkeley Rd.
Berkeley , Australia http://www.nantien.org.au/
61-2-4272-0600

The temple belongs to the Taiwanese Fo Guang Shan sect. Said to be the Southern Hemisphere’s largest Buddhist shrine, it’s billed as an international tourist attraction; busloads of Asian visitors mill the grounds yet the temple maintains an overwhelming sense of serenity, almost solitude. Gawk at the eight-story pagoda and the 10,000 images of Buddha, take a moment by the lotus pond, then retaire to the tearoom for osmanthus oolong and dumplings stuffed with bitter greens.
