Peaceful Place
Jan 2020
It is a nice and great place to visit during Chinese New Year. There are plenty of parking lots provided to visitors and the food serve here is meatless. The light decorations is quite cool and fascinating during the night. You would find dificulty to take a picture during the night. There is still a lot of place to cover that I couldn't covered.

回头是岸 - such profound proverbs on the main gate.

This temple is lineage is from Taiwan where Fo Guang Shang originated, there's also a branch in Singapore.

The compound is quite huge, with manmade waterfall, ponds, statues, steps, bridges and pagoda.

It is a nice place to wonder around, feel calm and relaxing.

The temple is well decorated, with beautiful statues, gardens and meaningful chinese quotes along the way to Daxiong Baodian. I would suggest parents to send their kids to the Buddhist camps held by Dongzen Temple as they are fun and meaningful for children to learn more.
