  • A great experience for all ages! I enjoyed going here alone in the early morning and had a wonderful time in the refreshing morning air having a peaceful walk around the entire property. The monk there was extremely kind and let me go into the shrine before they opened. Their gift shop is worth a visit as well!
  • Tranquility and prayer are two of the many facets of a visit, but the shrines, gift shop and library appeal to people who just enjoy beautiful and exotic art. The prayer wheel building has numerous wheels that are always spun clockwise to stay in rhythm with the earth. Another of the outdoor shrines, which was dedicated by the Dali Lama, has an amazing piece made from colored sand. Tourists and the are welcomed.
