DND Full Form

Berkeley, a southern suburb of Wollongong, is the setting for the largest Buddhist temple in the southern hemisphere.

Designed like a Chinese palace with flying eaves, Nan Tien Temple was built using modern techniques in the early 1990s.

The complex is embedded in landscaped gardens on a peaceful hillside and incorporates two vast prayer halls with Tibetan-style architecture, as well as meeting rooms, a museum, accommodation and a restaurant.

In the courtyards are serene, Japanese-style gardens.
