  • Interesting stop, the gentleman was more interested in walking on his treadmill than giving us a tour, but he reluctantly gave us a quick overcap. Very very interesting needed more information...

  • Such a beautiful and peaceful place. I was here for the Meditation Retreat and it was fantastic! It was my second time at this temple and both times, I’ve felt a sense of calmness and peacefulness. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The retreat was well organized so thank you to all of the amazing volunteers who put this together for us. The food was also amazing! I even bought extra goodies to take home.
  • Beautiful place that is free to visit! Bamboo, orchids, and a wide variety of other flowers and trees along small trails which lead to various buildings and 30'+ tall statues on the enormous property! We arrived after daily prayer (free for anyone to attend, there is a dress code though) and we purchased 3 egg rolls from their small kitchen. The kitchen cooks food for sale daily, FCFS, and when the food's gone, it's gone! They also have a gift shop which sells incense, signs, statues, and more. Spent about an hour walking around. Highly recommend!
