Visiting the Monastery here is cool enough but the restaurant is really great. Quite simple in decor, the staff is kind, quick and friendly. The food is amazing. The menu is huge so one might think that the food would be mediocre but be ready to be surprised! This is not even off the beaten path...a few minutes off the... More

If you think you do not like vegan food, give the restaurant at 10,000 Buddhas a try. Really yummy vegan food, Asian styled. All made from local fresh ingredients. Family styled eating. Take the time and walk around look at some of the really big redwoods and the wondering peacocks.

I was excited to come and see this place. I was staying in Ukiah to visit a friend for a few days and read about this place on here. It was beautiful grounds. Peacocks everywhere. They were in mating season too so they were proudly showing off. The actual temple with the 10,000 Buddhas was having a ceremonial prayer chant... More

It is peaceful and those who are their are open to helping you with any questions you may have. You can go into the gift store, walk the grounds, go into the temple or enjoy a vegetarian meal...

The house of ten thousand Buddhas an old abandoned hospital that was purchased in the seventies and has been incredibly transformed into a school to teach one lineage of Buddhism. The staff I met was cheerful helpful laughing and working hard to make the facility even nicer to accommodate the people that are here as they continue their practice on... More

This restaurant is vegetarian. The most unusual foods we've ever tasted, A very unique place to have lunch and worth the beauty of the Buddha.

So-so grounds, exquisite temple interior . . . GORGEOUS peacocks. Not a terribly "holy" feeling about the grounds -- they were part of a state mental hospital up until the 1980s -- but the monks and nuns that I saw are beautiful in their simplicity and spirituality.

Visiting the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas (CTTB) is like stepping into another time and another place. A place where one feels at peace almost immediately. A place where you are all but guaranteed to see at least several Peacocks and possibly Quail and usually Deer as well. Some of the citizens speak English , some with a foreign tongue... More

Only a section of the large complex is open for visitor: the visitor's center which houses a small exhibition hall and a book store, the hall of 10K Buddhas, and the restaurant. There aren't 10,000 Buddhas in the hall. The vegetarian restaurant is quite good.
