    This is the large innercourt of the Nan Tien Temple: you will be able to walk around of this innercourt and with a few meters exception you will be able to walk under some long arcades in order to get to the temple at the opposite side of the innercourt. In sunny weather you can also walk straight across the court in order to save some time, but then you might miss some of the great details in architecture.

    This is the main temple of Nan Tien. In the lower floors you will find some restaurants, a tea-house and the restrooms, but for the temple You can take the steps or an elevator in order to get to the large innercourt of the temple in the upper floor of this giant building.
    On the total you might need about 1 hour to see and enjoy all of the sights of this temple !

    You will find a lovely garden with a pond and lots of sculptures next to the large temples. Take your time for a short walk around that pond, obviously these sculptures are showing scenes of the life of Buddha, as I saw quite similar sculptures in Asia as well.
    You will also see some koi-karps in the pond.

    The easiest way to get to Nan Tien Temple is certainly by car, because it is not far from the main highway Nr1. You can drive through a large gate and park your car inside the wide park around the temple. Parking your car is free of charge and the gates are obviously open all day long.
    Visitors are welcome and are allowed to enter almost all parts of the temple.
    The gate in my pictures here is just the back-entrance, the main entrance is a lot more impressive and also more beautiful, but I was not able to make any pics there, while driving and there was also no place to stop for a moment to take a photo.

    Wollongong is just about 10km from this temple and so you can combine both places into a daytrip from Sydney or another place closeby.
    Wollongong has some interesting architecture in the old part of the city, great beaches, a lighttower and lots of good shopping-facilities for tourists !
    Read more about it in my Wollongong-page!
