It was pretty but there really wasn't much to see. Prayer wheel and story were nice. I think it'd be a great place for a wedding but other than that it was pretty boring in and out in less than 10 minutes.

Great spot for a picnic and to learn about the natural surroundings! The coolest part had to be the prayer wheel blessed by the Dalai Lama

A nice botanical garden which has planet from the high mountain environments. Loved the Tibetan temple which is only one of two places in the USA to be blessed by the Dalai Lama. Great place to spend part of a day and relax
