Great stop between Itaipu and the Cataratas

Very nice stop after the Itaipu and before going to see the waterfalls. I never visited one before - therefore for me it was quite nice.

The buddhist temple is full with cheerful people and beautiful gardens with statues. This is a chinese temple and the place feels truly relaxing and interesting. Signs are clear and will not leave the tourist wondering wether it is allowed to take pictures, step on grass or not. It was a simple yet insightful visit.

This is worth spending an hour or two to calmly wander about, it's so peaceful after the roar of the waterfalls nearby, and the bustle of the town.

A very interesting visit. Incredible statuary, and a beautiful temple. There was a guide and an intern to translate for us, and it was fascinating learning about the site and the history and importance of the figures.

The place is located in remote area of the city, but it is reachable. Very quiet and peaceful temple and not many visitors in there. I would definitely recommend this temple to visit.

It's located far from the city and offers a very beautiful and peaceful atmosphere. It's for free. It has a small gift shop where you can buy interesting souvenirs and the shop's staff offers explanations about all the products.

The temple is just ok. There are nice totems to see but what is really remarkable is the landscape (you can see both cities from there - Foz do Iguaçu and Cuidad Del Este)

Recommended for those who interested in Buddhism (pretty boring and unnecessary for those who are not interested).You can see a few statues in different positions. Beyond that - there's nothing to do there.
