AFRICA SOUTH AFRICA

How now? Nanhau. It’s a temple

You wouldn’t expect it; the largest Buddhist temple and seminary in Africa, on the side of the road just by Bronkhorstspruit, South Africa. It covers 600 acres and is the African headquarters of the Fo Guang Shan Order. It is odd. It is beautiful. It is where we used to stop for a coffee and some dim sum after a climbing day at the “Bronkies” but there is much more to this oddly placed piece of Eastern culture than a quiet space to talk about the days’ climbing. I will not try and describe it in words, but in pictures instead.

It is quiet and colourful and “spiritual”.

Late afternoon and sunbeams painting lazy patterns all over.
