Tet! Lunar New Year decorations at our local temple
Our nearby temple is Chua Minh Giac, and one of the resident monks is a dab hand at decoration.
Every year he goes all out to create some elaborate themed gardens and displays for visitors who come over the Lunar New Year period.
He has excelled himself this year.
Minh Giac Vietnamese Buddhist Temple

All welcome - enter the main hall via the driveway to the left of the house. If the roller-doors of the main temple aren't up, you can gain access via the doorway at the left of the complex at the back.
