Hsi Lai Buddhist Temple
Simply beautiful! A cultural experience is not exactly what the kids consider a fun day out, but I’m glad we took the guided tour around the architecturally stunning grounds.
Visitor Tips & Info
Although the grounds are frequently open to visitors, guided tours are only available specific days and times. Being unfamiliar with Buddhism, I’m grateful for a guided tour to explain the significance of the temple rooms, relay history about various pieces in the vast collection, and answer questions about the religion.
Vegetarian buffet is available for a $7 donation.
The temple tour was about looking, listening, learning, and showing respect…which can be hard for little kids.
