  • Beautiful people who never stop caring or giving. You don't have to be religious to reap the benefits of coming here. Even if you don't interact, the calmness and tranquility helps immensely. But I strongly suggest interaction. Their gentle kindness helped me when I lost my partner in tragic circumstances.
  • Absolutely gorgeous grounds and temple and statues. Such a beautiful area and surrounding gardens. Well look after and truly shines. Lots of lovely photo opportunities.
  • The temple is very calm and peaceful and the Venerables and other people who go there are so kind and gentle. I have been volunteering there for a year now and they have all contributed to my peace and well being. I know have a better insight into the people of China and it's surrounding islands. So many are free with information about their culture, history, and health matters. The festivals are not to be missed; Chinese New Year, and Buddha's Birthday at South Bank. Definitely a place to visit more than once.
  • So serene. I contemplated not visiting the temple, so glad I did. Take your time and embrace the tranquility and enjoy the beautiful gardens.
  • Peaceful beautiful of Chinese architecture. Good for relax your mind. Loard Buddha blessed 🌷❤
