This is nice temple with a lot of statues--some seem to be placed hap-harzardly around the property). Nothing too impressive if you have been to temples in Asia, but considering you are in a remote part of Brazil. You can stop by here for some good karma before crossing the bridge into the chaos of Ciudad del Este. It is... More

It's a buddhist temple out of town, very peaceful and beautiful, with a lot of statues and gardens, very nice place to take photos and also to have some peace of mind. You leave it with your energy recharged and a smile in your face :)

While researching things to do in Iguazu I stumbled upon this Buddhist temple it was honestly one of the highlights of my time in Brazil. We stayed about an hour and admired the scenery and great statues. It was raining but that didn't take away from the experience at all it was simply beautiful. The peaceful atmosphere and lovely statues... More

I have travelled extensively in Asia and was curious to see a Buddhist temple in Brazil. It was interesting. If you have some extra time on the way to/from the Itaipu dam I recommend to stop for a visit.

The temple is Situated away from the the town.So take a taxi there and tell them to wait for you.About 30 to 40 mins is enough unless you want to meditate.There quite a few statues and small shop and rest rooms.

It's a beautiful place to visit. There are a lot of statuary indoor and outdoor. There is also a small gift shop. It should have more information about what everything means.

It is a peaceful place to go and visit for the length of 1-2 hours maximum. It is far way so it is better go by car. Buses in Brasil are chaotic. I would return there for sure.

It's worth visiting. 1-2 hours is more than enough to see everything. There are few places like this one in South America. It's a little far from the center though. We took a bus, but we had to ask the locals where to get off. Taking a bus in Brazil is often like riding a roller coaster. Take a cab... More
