Travel Tales: Nan Tien #atozchallenge

Location: Nan Tien Temple, Wollongong (Australia)





Sitting inside the main temple, I gazed at the faces of four giant Buddha Statues, one by one. Each of them had a look of unattainable peace, like there was not a worry in the world. I wondered when was the last time I had that much peace in my life. I closed my eyes, and felt the surging waves of thoughts in my mind. Wild! 

The four walls inside the massive hall are decorated with miniature golden Buddha statues. They brighten your eyes as soon as you enter the door, leaving you bewitched by it's beauty. (Photography isn't allowed inside the main temple)


The House of Mirrors
Afar the gratitude bell rings, far up in the hills. The walk uphill isn't tough, the path beautifully laid and the lime green surroundings further calms your mind. It's a beautiful and serene place if you let yourself feel the energy.
