“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Stop by during a Buddhist service if possible (my wife and I were lucky enough to stop by during an investiture of Buddhist nuns. The entryway elevator leads to an excellent balcony view of the interior. One block from the Maxwell Food Court and in the southern corner of Chinatown.

This place is so beautiful and serene. It is a must to explore each and every floor to fully appreciate the marvellous statues and background stories to Buddhism and Buddhist related topics.

“Pleasant diversion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We stopped to take photos and then went into the temple. It is very clean, was surprised to see a library and tea house on the upper level so we stopped for a tea. Very nice place and very peaceful. After this we were blessed by a monk and we made a offering of flowers with a candle burning. You should stop by an after shopping the stalls go inside the temple for some peace and quiet time to reflect and be a little mindful like the Buddha teaches
