Oh... and if you can call yourself a feng shui master... how is it that the Sze Yup temple in Glebe faces a directly opposing direction to the Chinese temple in nearby Alexandria? That simple little question has always puzzled me.
I'm not a feng shui master, just a student, but traditional feng shui is based on houses, or temples, being built in the Northern Hemisphere.
As things like the sun can have an effect on feng shui the orientation should change for buildings in the Southern Hemisphere.
North and South change but East and West don't change as the sun still rises in the east and sets in the West
Perhaps the builders of one of these temples didn't think this through and used Chinese Feng Shui and the builders of the other used Aussie Feng Shui.

Right, the North/South switch for us here is the only change. All the other considerations, such as running water, high ground at the rear, furniture and interior arrangements, mirrors in particular, and colours, remain the same.
