I found this quite an interesting place, although I had read about it, it was still an unusual place to find a temple. The Buddhist statues that were lined up outside were donated from other areas in South America, mainly Brazil. Definitely worth a visit.
Really beautiful grounds and sculptures.Very peaceful and spiritual. A little far from downtown. I suggest to go to the shop first and buy a leaflet (cheap) before visiting - it tells the history and explains what are each of the statues.
Very nice and relaxing area. I only wish I could understand more, maybe with s help of a monk or some descriptions?
It's a place for peace , retrospective thinking about ourself . What can I say !! Come , feel cherish . It's hard to describe . One thing is sure you can feel a pinch of inner peace .
It is very beautiful and peaceful place.
