Brisbane experiences

Foguangshan Chung Tian Temple

A peaceful venue for the celebration of Buddhism, Chung Tian Temple welcomes people from all walks of life. The name Chung Tian Temple means “middle heaven” and the temple building, set amid native Australian bushland girded by modern Zen-style gardens, is a beautiful example of traditional Chinese Buddhist architecture.

You can take a guided tour of the temple and surrounds - or join any of the activities on offer such as meditation, calligraphy, ringing of the blessing bell (the biggest and heaviest bell in Brisbane!), Chinese tea ceremony, Chinese language classes, origami and Tai Chi. Visit the What’s On section of the temple’s website for more information on the weekly program of activities.

Be sure to visit the museum, which houses a substantial collection of Buddha and Bodhisattva statues, Chinese calligraphic works, paintings, crafts and other Asian artefacts. New themes and special displays are periodically showcased.
