Be sure to get there well before noon. It's a wonderful place for mediation. Be respectful and wear a proper shirt and pants or borrow one of their sarongs.

A lovely Temple. The architecture is interesting, the grounds are beautiful. There are Hindu sculptures, some very nice crystals, including one of the 12 "earthkeeper" crystals in the world. It is a functioning Temple, so you must be respectful of the worshippers. However, they are...More

A quiet spiritual space. Not being Hindi, I did not understand the significance of the symbols, but there were well documented write ups of their beliefs. And good comparisons between different religions. I left with a better understanding of the Hindu religion and how it...More

Tried to visit the temple but they were having mass until 1030 and could not. The outside grounds is beautiful tho and there is a waterfall lookout on the way up which made the drive more worth it

Interesting history. The tour guides seem very knowledgeable. You'll need to call and make reservations for the tour, which is recommended. Beautiful grounds. They explain that's not a place where you need to be quiet, whcih lightens the mood tremendously.

You could have an Uber driver or taxi company pick you up at the harbor and it would cost approximately $30.00 each way!
