A nice little stop over on our way to Eureka from the Bay Area. We spent a couple of hours here. After registering at the Admin office, we checked out the small museum and the gift store. This is a small little monastery with two schools and a little vegetarian cafe. The food at the cafe was really nice. What... More

Going to the City of 10 Thousand Buddhas is a cultural experience without having to travel. I love the restaurant! Hours are limited (Wed-Mon 11 - 3) so we don't make it there very often but I can never get enough of the wonderful food! The service is a little unique, so go with an open mind. They only take...

What an awesome and peaceful experience. I could go on and on about this place. All I can say is, if you are in this area, you must stop by and check this place out. I have not felt so relaxed and at peace. Everyone was kind and went out of their way to make this place even more amazing.... More

My husband used to lived there when he first came to the US. It's nice to see the street names. There were a lot of peacocks. He said its different. We went and had lunch there. The restaurant is not open on Tuesday but the food was delicious for being vegan. There are only three buildings that we are able... More

We encountered dozens of peacocks, during mating season. It was loud and beautiful! Our meal was okay. We went on a Saturday and there weren't any scheduled activities.

Original we visited to have lunch at the restaurant. It was not open on Tuesdays (many in Ukiah are not) so we spent time walking through the university grounds after checking in at the registration office. We enjoyed a quiet, peaceful stroll through the grounds, stopping in at the museum, gift shop and temple. I didn't count but their must... More

We have traveled past Ukiah many times on our way to visit family, but this was our first visit to this lovely location. Our reason for stopping was for lunch. The food is all homemade vegetarian with the freshest ingredients. Even the nonvegetarians a.long us were delighted. This is definitely a must. Even if you don't have lunch a visit... More

This is a place for all. It is educational for children to learn about religion. It is eye-opening for environmentalists to see animals freely walks among people. It is an experience for foodies to try vegetarian dishes at the restaurant on-site. Personally, I enjoy the meditation and chanting sessions that help me clear my mind. Please stop by the administration... More

The museum and grounds were very interesting, and the people were very nice. You would enjoy it if you like this sort of thing.
