About Us

International Buddhist Cham Shan Temple of Australia is a Buddhist Temple of Tiantai School situated in Morisset, located in the Central Coast of NSW.

The temple was founded in 1995 with the goal to serve the Australian community through Dharma teachings (teachings of the Buddha) and spiritual guidance.

To build the temple a piece of farm land was purchased in 1996, and through many hardships, it has developed into what it is today.

A building to the left of the grounds was completed in 2008, comprising of a chanting hall, library, etc. The chanting hall houses the statues of Amitabha Buddha, Kwan Yin (Avalokitesvara) Bodhisattva and Mahasthamaprapta Bodhisattva of Pureland.

Library service with a collection of Buddhist materials is also available for the public to borrow.
