Nan Tien Temple

Yesterday we went to the largest buddhist temple in the southern hemisphere. When I looked at the huge, red, tiled temple I felt peace and happiness. We walked around in a peaceful courtyard that had inflatables in the yard. A big gong and a big bell that still gets used at the start and end of every day.

We walked from the courtyard to the silent, praying chanting room which had 5 different buddhas that all mean something different. The temples were amazing. I just stood at the door for a while and looked at all the detail.

We noticed a few people coming to chant. Before they entered the would light incense, bow and leave their incense in a shrine at the front door.

Buddhist believe strongly in karma, reincarnation and natural phenomenon from cause and effect.

We loved that Nan Tien Temple!
