This place let you forget that you are in Brazil. The temple area is clean and invites to relax. Unfortunately, the descriptions are just in portuguese, so for a person with not much knowledge about the buddhist religion is a bit lost about the meaning of the statues.

This temple is lovely and really well taken care of. While we were there, people were polishing the statues and taking care of the garden. If you are into Buddhism (or even if you are not) it is worthwhile visiting it. It is located on top of a hill, on a peaceful a beautiful spot. I visited the temple on... More

A big and beautiful place to appreciate the silence of peace. It is free. You should visit the small store.

Well, the temple is located in a poor neighborhood, not sure if it's safe. I went with the local bus, was told by a local that there are muggers in the area. The temple has very big statues. After seeing so much nature during this trip, it was shocking to see these man-made structures. For me, it took some of... More

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 obligatory Gift Shop at the end of the tour was a great hit with the Ladies in our group, who each purchased... More
