Nan Tien Temple – Wollongong…

by on Feb.01, 2012, under Life, Photography

On our way back from staying at the grandparents home on the south coast the girls and I spent a few hours visiting the Nan Tien Buddhist Temple in Wollongong.

It was an interesting place to visit and in many ways very reminiscent to the Buddhist temple we visited when we were in Hong Kong (including the vegetarian lunch we ate and excepting that this was a modern construction :))

The stairs leading up to the Pagoda

If you follow the path up the hill above the temple grounds you’ll find this bell which the girls enjoyed ringing…

inside one of the shrines – they are all very very decorated

a couple from the large Lotus pond – I was very happy with how these turned out with the 70-300 (still a very underrated lens I reckon)
