The grounds and setting are very nice. Touring the temple was very peaceful and learning about all the Buddhas was informative.

Maybe IF you are a Buddhist this place would be more exciting but I am not. It was pleasant and nice but a bit dull after the build up from ALL the other reviews. Informative, yes. Nice gounds. And, a peacock. Done.

A place where gives you power inside of your heart. Peaceful, wordless but you would get a lot more than someone speaks to you and tell you. Hard to explain, just use heart to listen.

I LOVE the Chinese food at 10,000 Buddhas. It is delicious and reasonably priced. It is very peaceful on the campus. Can be cold during the winter, so bring a coat even when eating inside.

There are no 'overnight' accomodations at CTTB. This is basically a monestary and a large school for high school level and above. There is lodging in Ukiah, CA of all types; about two miles away.
