KMC New York is located on 82 wooded acres in the colorful Upper Delaware River Valley in rural New York, one of the most natural and pure areas in the Northeast. It is just two hours by car, bus, or train from New York City, and minutes from the New Jersey and Pennsylvania borders. The Temple is open to the public every day, including the dessert café and gift shop.

  • The most beautiful peaceful place I know of. If you want to learn about or practice Buddhism come and try a retreat or just come on a Sunday for Prayers for World Peace
  • Wondering if I gave this place 1 Star, if I would get bad Karma 🤣 just kidding had some 5 star spiritual experiences here. A range of retreat types. Check the Kadampa New York and other websites. Some good beginner and more advanced options. Top tip book early if you want to stay on site in your own room. I have stayed in the smaller dorm and few times and was fine. Also stayed near Port Jervis in a hotel but I prefer the experience staying on the site! If you have any curiosity around meditation I recommend this place. It’s open to all faiths including atheists. No requirement to be a Buddhist!
