What a lovely experience. You can sit in on a Buddhist ceremony where the people are friendly and welcoming. You can climb enough stairs to eat 3 dozen donuts afterwards and not gain an ounce. This temple and its grounds will keep you busy for a couple of hours even though one of the largest structures is closed for renovation.
