I loved this place. With the swans and turtles, meditation areas, beautiful landscaping with water features it was so peaceful and relaxing. I could easily spend hours here. The flowers were beautiful.

This replica temple set in a beautiful location, below the cliffs and surrounded by ponds, is very pretty and pleasant. However, perhaps because it isn't a real functioning temple, it lacks something the real temples have, a sort of hushed reverent peace.

Great place to visit on the way to the North Shore. This place is very special and great for a family visit. Allow about an hour to have a good look around.

When we came to visit Byod-in Temple, we thought it was just a replica of a Japanese Temple of some sort... which it is. But it is also a working Buddist Temple. Very Cool. It's very quiet, except for the black goose and some frogs,...More

What a beautiful reproduction. Everything is superb. When we enter the site, we have a little road ahead before arriving at the Japanese Temple. You find yourself in a multicultural cemetery. Once on the scene, do not forget to ring the cong to ensure you...More

This is one of my most favorite places. I can come here and sit in the gardens for hours meditating and breathing in the fresh air. The temple is beautiful and it is fun to also feed the coi fish.

You can ride the motorcycle there. There will be a parking lot and you can park it there and then walk to the temple.
