Guidelines for School Visits

  • Please book six weeks in advance by completing the forms and emailing to temple@chungtian.org.au
  • The number of tour guides has to be coordinated to ensure that groups are adequately supported. As such, it would be appreciated if tour organisers would re-confirm the number of attendees a week before. This would help us to confirm the number of guides necessary to cover your tour.
  • The Temple provides a peaceful haven to promote peace of mind and clarity of thought. As such, we do not encourage clutter and request that you remove any rubbish generated during your visit.
  • Vegetarianism is practised at the Temple for the cultivation of compassion and respect for all lives.
  • Visitors are advised that they are responsible for their personal property at all times. There are designated areas where your property may be stored however it is best left on the bus. Kindly secure all your personal belongings as we will not be held liable for any losses incurred while you are on the Temple’s premises.
  • General photography of the Temple grounds is allowed however it is not allowed inside the buildings.
