Ron Wong of Oahu Spot Tours drove a very scenic route inland so we could visit the Buddhist temple and see the ancient bell housed there. Very peaceful, beautifully maintained place, awesomely inspiring wood temple with koi ponds and lots of pretty... More

A walk through the beautiful gardens and temple quiets the mind and inspires the soul. The black swans and the ringing of the gong add a special touch.

Calming and natural site with beautiful temple buildings. Excellent retreat from the noise of Oahu. Visit the Pali lookout on the way there.

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.
