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

It is a quick visit to a relaxing and quite place. It is located out of the way but if you are in a car, or you have enough days to expend in the city definitely it is a place you cannot miss.

It's worth to see , but keep in mind that it may not be a good idea to walk there all the way from the city center as we did. Take a cab and enjoy your trip :D

I took the city bus from the terminal (I had thought I could walk there -- really glad I didn´t try that!). It was a good place to visit -- all the Buddhas, lots of birds, quiet and lovely.

Good to have a look at this rare buddhist temple of brazil. Better to get there by taxi, the main onibus road is far away from the temple.

Nice little tranquil stop, worth the side trip if you go visit the dam. Some nice Buddas and other statues. Good for about an hour.

This is a very open space with lots of statues. Very calm atmosphere - a ceremony was in place and we could hear the mantras from far.

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
