    The Fo Guang Shan Dong Zen monastery in Jenjarom, near Banting, Selangor, is a landscape of lanterns and flowers. In the gardens, the trees bend under the weight of pink cherry blossoms and the tea trees have been sculptured into Bodhisattvas. At seven metres, they are a majestic sight.

    Thousands of potted plants within the monastery, most of them in full bloom will fill the air with heady scents. Outside the main shrine, three brightly-lit animatronic figures of the Buddha and Boddhisatvas will sprinkle holy water from an elevated rail.

    The temple is a simple and serene place all year round for devotees to meditate. But during the Chinese New Year, the place is bathed in lights and abuzz with interesting activities.
