Fo Guang Shan Dong Zen Temple @ Jenjarom, Selangor


Few weeks back I went with the family to Fo Guang Shan – Dong Zen Temple at Jenjarom. I’m sure some of you must have heard about Fo Guang Shan as this temple attract lots of visitors during Chinese New Year for their beautiful lanterns. I never visited this temple during CNY because I hate crowds. 😛

We spent a leisurely 1 hour there with only about 4-5 groups of people. Basically we own that place! Hahaha

We finish the visit right on time just when the rain is starting to fall. Overall Fo Guang Shan is an interesting temple with plenty to see. In my opinion, the Lumbini garden is a good place to think about life.

    I’ve visited this temple before but it was too crowded! OK, maybe I should visit it during non peak season, but then again, it’s simply too far!

      A nice place to enjoy with family. 🙂

      I didn’t register for a Fantasy team this season. Unbelievable right? I was once a super football addict. Somehow someway last year… my football addiction suddenly wane off. I still follow ManUtd news but I rarely see them play now. Blame my Korean addiction. Haha
