Photographer's Note

In 1992, the Bronkhorstspruit City Council donated 6 hectares of land to the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Order to be developed into a Chinese Buddhist, Cultural, and Educational Complex - about 50km from Pretoria.

The result is very impressive in terms of size (the photo only show a small pavilion), and quite surprising to see in the African landscape.

All Fo Guang Shan temples throughout the world are working to promote humanistic Buddhism and to transform people and the world under the direction of Master Hsing Yun.

The main temple was officially opened in 2005. There are presently over 250 Fo Guang Shan temples throughout the the world.
