Photos taken on a recent trip to the Nan Tien Buddhist Temple at Berkeley near Wollongong

These are some photos I took last Sunday at the Nan Tien Buddhist Temple.  I went there by train and bus with a group of friends for the day.  It was built in 1992 and has expanded since then to encompass an institute, retreat and university courses involving Buddhism and health and well being,as well as cooking, calligraphy and other activities.

It is the largest Buddhist temple in the Southern Hemisphere and sits in the midst of beautiful, tranquil grounds with manicured trees and hedges and a beautiful lotus pond and pagoda.
