“Paradise on earth”

The City of Ten Thousand Buddhas
Ranked #2 of 44 things to do in Ukiah
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 30, 2013

This is a place for all. It is educational for children to learn about religion. It is eye-opening for environmentalists to see animals freely walks among people. It is an experience for foodies to try vegetarian dishes at the restaurant on-site. Personally, I enjoy the meditation and chanting sessions that help me clear my mind.

Please stop by the administration office on your way in. The front desk will be able to give you an overview of the campus. The same building also housed the bookstore. There are just a few simple rules: no smoking, no alcohols, no pets and no non-vegetarian food on-site. Please note that they are actual residents on campus. One gentleman was telling us about the time when a family just drove up, took out a throw and started having a picnic on his front lawn. Of course he is much nicer than me. I would have just turned on the sprinklers :)

Enjoy!

The museum and grounds were very interesting, and the people were very nice. You would enjoy it if you like this sort of thing.

Great place to eat vegan food. There were lot of peacocks on property, makes it really quiet and has a charm.

If your looking to relax and enjoy some great tasting food, this is the place for you. From the old buildings to the Peacocks the roam freely, you will enjoy what the City has to offer.

If you want to feel the experience, I suggest you take a walk through the Temple.
