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.
