A Buddhist establishment for the western suburbs of Victoria. A place of worship and celebrations. On Sundays, vegetarian food as well as a fresh produce market is available to support the temple. Friendly place to learn Mahayana (Chinese style) Buddhism.

This temple is not worth visiting in itself. However it is the location of a great free vegetarian lunch every Sunday 12-1pm. Just grab a plate and get in line! There are usually hundreds of people attending. There's also a market outside offering drinks, sweets,...More
