Took the wife kids and her parents here. The missis is Chinese and she and her parents enjoyed it a lot. The kids had fun looking for turtles in the pond. Plenty of parking. We saw some kind of service which was a bonus.

very quiet, peaceful and beautiful Tons of carving, gold and craftsmanship. Pictures are not allowed in the temple buildings. Several explanations of the different Buddhas, lots of items that appeared to be paying homage to the deceased.

As we were in Richmond we visited this lovely temple. The gardens and temple are very beautiful, although the smell of incense was a bit overpowering. The golden Buddha was magnificent. We didn't get to sample the food, but saw the tables laid out for the "senior" day meals. It was well worth the couple of hours we spent there.
