Something about the site makes freshens you up the second you arrive – the view overlooking the mirror, the tall palm trees, the picnic tables and the simply but beautifully decorated temple itself. It’s tranquil and peaceful and it’s fascinating to watch the monks go about their business. Services are usually between 1pm and 2pm, and while you’re invited to observe the chanting (which can sound epic), don’t be a nuisance. Make no noise whatsoever.

Every Sunday, no matter what, the Temple hosts a Sunday market, which is a fantastic place to catch some munchies.Seriously, try them out! - spring rolls, pad thai, fried bananas, and noodle soup are only the beginning of the best of thai cuisine here. You can get some pretty exotic fruits to bring back too. Bring cash though, credit cards are not accepted payment.

  • I went there for the first time this weekend. I was impressed! The food was delicious. The volunteers were kind and knowledgeable. They answered any questions I had about the dishes and didn't seem bothered by it at all. It was an lovely experience. I'll definitely be going back!

  • The Temple rivals any we have seen around the world; it’s striking. Taking a few quiet moments is a calming experience even for those of us of different mindsets. The Sunday market is a big draw, of course, as it should be. Excellent food for the body and soul!

  • I absolutely adore this place and love going on a Sunday. The beef noodle soup is so, so delicious. There’s so much going on here: lots of awesome Thai snacks, deep fried bananas and sweet potato, Thai tea(!), skewers, and curry dishes. It’s pretty inexpensive, too, considering the amount of food you get and how intensely satisfying it is - but everything is cash only! Parking is also a little crazy, and the crowds can end up being A LOT of people. Go early to avoid this stuff. Come hungry and ready to try new things. It is a beautiful and special place.

  • Such a beautiful and relaxing place. It’s one of Florida secret treasure that everyone should visit and experience. The food is cheap around $1 for drinks, $3 for dessert, $5-$6 for food. The view is so beautiful and breathtaking. The food is hot and cooked there. The lake view is super beautiful and calming. You are also allow to walk into the temple and find your inner peace. The temple is full of positive energy that you feel a weight is lift off your shoulder. There’s meditation pads and chairs. Please be respectful and not wear shorts, tank tops, inappropriate shirts, and take off your shoes. Must visit here every Sunday if you have nothing else to do and want to find fun. They start from 8:30am to 1:00pm. Plenty of time for breakfast, brunch, or lunch! Very good and friendly. Also, it’s for a good purpose and donations! Must visit!

  • This place was amazing and so peaceful. It’s like a hidden gem. We missed the food but so we decided to tour around. It’s beautiful place. If you’re in Tampa you should try to visit this place. Peaceful place to also meditate.
