Chung Tai Chan Monastery was first built in 1994. Additional layout and modification work was carried out from 1994 to 2000, giving rise to the majestic Chung Tai Chan Monastery we see today. Senior Master Weijue worked together with famous architect and layman CY Lee to integrate both Chinese and Western architectural styles within the essence of the Monastery. The meditative insight of direct enlightenment, the spirit of perseverance of gradual edification, and the atmosphere of ancient forests were utilized. This combined artistic, academic, religious, and cultural elements without compromising the element of Zen. The resulting Monastery is a remarkable sight. In addition to its breathtaking architecture, it also offers comprehensive hardware facilities for the worshipers. This includes meditation halls, Hall of the Caturmaharajakayikas, the Hall of Buddha, Hall of the Three Buddhas, lecture halls, guest rooms, hostels, and dining rooms.
