It is a great place for people to stroll around in the beautiful Chinese garden or admiring authentic Chinese architecture. We were there on a weekday afternoon and there were only a few visitors. We really enjoy the quietness in the temple. Check out the map in the parking lot before heading in. We missed the halls, shrine, and the mural in the back because I didn't check. We would definitely come back to spend more time exploring the temple and to try the vegetarian cuisine offered in their cafeteria.

I was very impressed with the architecture of the Buddhist Temple. It depicts Chinese art and culture with many beautiful Buddhist statues. The people there were very friendly and helpful. Great place to visit in Richmond, BC.
