    Location

    Cham Shan Temple was established in 1973 by Ho Nansang and Ho Nanji. They donated a building and called it Cham Shan Temple, named it in memory of the temple in Tsing Tao, China which was built by Grand Master Tan Xu. Their three disciples - Dharma Masters Sing Hung, Shing Cheung and Lok To were invited to take charge of the temple.

    Fulfilling the wishes of their teacher, the three Dharma Masters further expanded the temple and its congregation, and promoted the dharma. With the support and help from the buddhist communities, in 1975 the initial simple building was expanded to become a majestic temple, thus establishing it as the first Chinese buddhist temple in Toronto, offering a place for the local Chinese community to learn more about Buddhism and the Dharma.

    The two main halls of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva and Bodhisattva Ksitigarbharaja were built in 1984 and 1994 respectively. The main gate and memorial Hall of Tan Xu were then added. In 1998 and 2000, two adjacent properties were bought and were named as Prajna Hall and Avatamsaka Hall. Presently, the total area of the temple complex is over 3 acres. Additional properties were bought in other parts of Ontario and developed into various temples, such as Hung Fa Temple, Cham Shan Chan Temple, Fo Hai Chan Temple, Cham Shan Library, Fa Hai Chan Temple, Cham Shan Buddhist Learning Centre, Ten Thousand Buddhas Sarira Stupa, and etc. Regular activities held are dharma talks, meditation, prayer services, repentence services and other services, dharma lessons and library facilities.
