Description:

Nestled at the base of the majestic Ko'olau Mountain range is the Byodo-In Temple. Built in the 1960s, this temple pays homage to the arrival of Japanese immigrants in Hawai'i and is a replica of a 1,000 year-old Buddhist temple in Japan. A 10 foot tall, gold and lacquer Buddah, the largest created in the past 900 years, greets visitors as they remove their shoes and enter the temple of peace and tranquility. A teahouse, meditation house and carp pond surround the temple providing visitors with a quiet retreat.
