The temple’s name, Mu-Ryang-Sa, means “Broken Ridge Temple.” You may have noticed on your drive up that the top ridge of the temple is broken. What appears as a flaw of the temple has both a story and a significant Buddhist teaching. The construction of the first temple building began in 1980, but during the temple’s construction, it was discovered... More

All of the above... this Buddhist Temple was recommended by a friend who had visited a few weeks prior to our arrival in Honolulu. What a beautiful island of peace and beauty just a short drive from the hectic pace of Waikiki. We spent an hour or so walking the well kept grounds, rang the gong, and had a few... More

Nice and peaceful place. Beautiful to take pictures. The only thing I didn't like is that you have to actually enter a cemetery to get there. Te temple is located inside a very nice and beautiful cemetery. Just so you know. ;)

Hawaii doesn't feel like it's in the USA, and places like this amplify that feeling. It feels like one is in Asia. Splendid atmosphere, Wonderful views of Honolulu, Inspiring color combinations!

What a lovely place to visit to get away from the bustle of Waikiki. We visited as part of a circle tour of the island. Definitely worth the visit. The fish are huge!! The temple itself is quite small but the grounds alone are worth stopping by. Be sure to look in the gift shop at the chimes of varying... More

Beautiful and quiet. This was so relaxing and a nice break from the tourist scene even though we were on a tour at the time. My daughter loved to ring the bell and she went wild taking lots of photos.

A refreshing change from the plastic of Waikiki. This is an real Buddhist temple being used by the local community. It is very beautiful and tranquil - well worth a visit if you have a car.

this place is amazing. I'm not a fad Buddhist, nor a devote follower, but I was moved by this temple. It's very inspiring and beautiful. What more can I say? you can stay here as long as you like in the presence of a massive statue of a Buddha. If I become a Buddha (which I don't think I can... More
