This was a just ok place to walk thru . It has many statues of their religious leaders and such . Inside one building it was low light and gloomy. The other building I wanted to see in was closed .

James C, consultant at Cham Shan Temple, responded to this reviewResponded 20 September 2018

The Cham Shan Temple is a beautiful place to visit. You feel the serenity walking around the Temple. It's no.1 to visit in Niagara Falls for me. When everything is open there is lots to do and their rice is great.

You can go into the property as long as the front gates are open. Everytime that I have stopped by during the day I could freely go around the property taking many pictures of the statues etc. They do have meditation time... More

I am not sure. However, it is a Buddhist temple not just a show place. So I suspect it might be open.
