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

This is said to be the largest authentic Korean Buddhist temple outside of Korea. The English name is "Broken Ridge Temple." The best time to visit is on a late afternoon on Saturday because you can meditate with a sitting group there. It's led by a well-known mindfulness meditation teacher who speaks English--Dr. Gregory Pai. It's open to the public... More
