This is a unique and interesting insight into the buddhist religion. Our guide was an expat european who was interesting as well, but we would have preferred a more authentic representative. We learned a lot about buddhism. Recommend if you have interest in the subject.

This place brings you into a calmer mood unless you are the most ignorant ;) The shrine is stunning, the whole atmosphere captivating. There a very good bookstore.

Such a beautiful place - I love wandering around their bookstore to find things to read, and just love the main shrine room to meditate.

Cultural place to stop and admire. It's not very big, but the public can sit in the main shrine room, sans footwear and meditate or observe the shrine. Some people were actual Buddhists, but most were there, like me, to get a feel for the...More

Loved the architecture of the building, a solemn place to sit and pray. There are also 2 other small old buildings for prayer that are more rustic. Very nice

Visited the monastery just before going to hike on Overlook Mountain. Beautiful grounds and buildings, and amazing shrine. We joined an ongoing guided tour, really enjoyed it. It was a bit of a surprise to find a piece of Tibet here in Catskills, just 2...More

Sorry, I don't know their schedule. I'd suggest you contact them directly. It seems the timing of some of their events are fluid.

Can't remember but relatively early. The grounds are sort of open, and there is a board on the outside of the bookstore with hours for the temples.
