We got lucky on a tour that added this in. From the moment you walk into the place, its very peaceful and lots to see. You can walk the place in 30 minutes. If you take your time and see and read everything it will take 60+ minutes. Well worth the time! Remember to ring the Gong!

My family and I took a visit to the temple. We were pretty much the only people there. We spent some time looking in and around the buildings. Beautiful views and an opportunity to light some incense and sit peacefully for a moment. Our kids are a little older so enjoyed exploring but I wouldn't recommend this to parents with... More

We stumbled on this amazing location. The grounds are beautiful and the koi pond and birds just add to the beauty. Grab some food in the gift store and feed the fish and birds. The birds will fly and perch to eat out of your hand. They had talented artisans set up outside. We purchased a beautiful print. The temple... More

I wish this was a review. For goodness sakes I could use some tranquility right now. However I will be there in Dec. Anyway, the pictures that are posted are of Byodo In Temple in the Valley of Temples off the Kam hwy. Just thought everyone should know.

If this temple wasn't aleady rated in Trip Advisor, I wasn't going to to advertise it. It isone of the few places in Honolulu you can go to and not feel the insolence and irreverance from the uneducated. We arrived just after opening and we were the only people there, other than some maintenance workers. We walked amongst the ponds,... More

When I visited, I only saw one other person: a weird looking guy speaking very loudly on his cell phone in the garden area. I felt like I was intruding as I walked around. I loved the bright colors and weird statues. It's not easy to get here, though. You have to drive through a hilly Honolulu neighborhood and not... More

it's a beautiful temple at the back of Palolo Valley. great place to take pictures. Very quiet and peaceful. not really much to do, but it's really a place to appreciate the beauty and to let your mind and body relax.
