When you drive up to this amazing place, you will be tempted to pass on by. Road construction impedes easy entrance and huge gold domes stand out from the lush gardens. But step inside and you will find a spectacular garden of tranquility, with trickling waterfalls, crystal clear ponds with koi abundant, and spectacular ocean vistas. in this amazing spot last week, on a cliff overlooking the Pacific, I asked my beloved to marry me. I would HIGHLY recommend the spot; she said "YES, YES, YES!!!"

We decided to go here after lunch in Encinitas and were amazed by the beautiful gardens and atmosphere they had. The ocean view was equally as amazing as you are up on a cliff looking out into the ocean. I would recommend visiting the gardens for both the view and tranquility!

One of the most beautiful places on earth that I ever visited. When I entered the gardens I felt like home. Even if you don't meditate, it's worth to walk around and enjoy the peace of this place. Try it out for yourself :-)

There is nothing to dislike about these gardens. Leave your cell phone in the car and just walk, listen to the ocean and enjoy the gardens.
