I was going through a difficult time after some troubling health news. This beautiful place offered serene refuge for a several hours of soul searching. Thank you for the safe space to let me emotions flow without fear of judgement.

Nice place to see, very relaxing. Good for meditation. Check if it is open, it is closed during winter months.

I was there with a large group and it was a delightful experience. The energy that radiated from this monastery was soothing and positive. It was my first time visiting and I will return to have a personal experience in the prayer room. It was relaxing to just walk around. The statues of the buddha as you walk into the facility are very cool. The most amazing site was the GIANT buddha. Absolutely a pleasurable experience over all.

A beautiful place to visit. I walked around the grounds, sat by the lake and watched the fish, ate the delicious vegetarian lunch and went on the guided tour. The Buddha statue is very impressive. To get there, I got the train from Grand Central to Cold Spring and then took an Uber.

If I could I would not give this horrible place even one star!..I don’t know what kind of terribly cheap strong chemicals they using to clean carpet there!..Me and my young daughter got terrible contact dermatitis on our feet after walking barefoot inside the temple...Two weeks late we still suffering from it!..Shame on you, people!.. We have been in many places where required to walk barefoot (masks in Istanbul...Andalusia ) but never got anything like that!..Shame on you!..
