We knew it was closed, but took a chance and rode the city bus out anyway. The bus ride takes forever, as you loop thru shopping districts and neighborhoods, but just tell the cashier that you want Buddhist Temple and he will let you know when to get off. It's then a 3 minute walk. Just make sure you go... More

Peaceful with great views of Paraguay and Brazil on either sides of the river. You can get close up with the statues and take great pictures.

A must go even if you are not a Buddhist. It's a gorgeous part of the city where you can look out to Paraguay and the city centre. There is no entrance fee or parking fee. A must go if you have an extra couple of hours.

Our visit was pleasant. Barely anyone there and beautiful weather but there's not a whole lot to experience there. It all felt a bit like "That's it?".
