This Buddhist temple is in a nice location on a hill overlooking Paraguay a few minutes outside of Foz do Iguazu. The grounds are nice and well-maintained, and the large statues are impressive. A good place to spend 15-20 minutes.

We didn't realise that there was even a Buddhist Temple in Foz do Iguacu but what a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed walking the grounds and admiring the serenity. One thing special was to be able to listen to the monks chanting from within the temple

This is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I have ever vistied. It's the perfect place to rest a little and think about your trip. Besides, the view you have from the city is worth it!

Beautiful, calm, nothing else like it in Brazil. If you like meditation and just strolling through a quiet park - this is a great venue for it.

If you have some spare time it's nice to visit, by the that time it wasn't finish, don't expect too much, although has a lot of beautiful stuff it's a bit away from the city.

Nice temple with lot's of statues and a big garden when one can relax with view of the river Paraná and, in the backround, the Friendship Bridge, border of Brazil and Paraguay. Good option to escape from the noise.

This is a very unique and wonderful place. We were in the Foz on a family trip and saw the falls every way we could, but what my son will always remember as the most awesome is this temple.

Interesting sight in Foz founded by volunteers and followers of budism. Beautiful and restful place, where you can have the view of both Foz (Brazil) and Ciudad del Este (Paraguay). However, to get there can be rather confusing. Go on a city tour or hire a guide.
