The Temple is open to the public every day, including the dessert café and gift shop. Visitors from all backgrounds come to find rest and refuge from the stresses of busy modern life, and draw inspiration from spiritual friends that include Buddhist monks and nuns.

  • If you've never been here you don't know what you're missing. I have never gone and not been happier. The fair was fun got some cool stuff for the house and Iced Chai Latte was the best drink I've had in a long time
  • Hard to put into words. A most auspicious temple! Pictures are great but when you arrive you will see what I mean. Enjoy!
