Saturday tour of the Monastery was very informative to this novice. Fostered further inquiry and reading. My husband participated in an introductory meditation session that was helpful. Bookshop is extraordinary and staff is very helpful and obviously informed. There is free parking.

Small lovely campus to walk around. There was a teaching in session so the times of entry to the main shrine were restricted. Check the schedule before you go if you want to meditate. Also park in marked areas only, you WILL get ticketed if you park at the entry to Overlook Mt trail. The bookstore is very diverse in... More

This is a beautiful Buddhist Monestary. This place is so beautiful and peaceful. The decor is just stunning down to every tiny detail. The grounds and landscape are also very well maintained. Recommend to go for the transcendent chanting and steep in the peaceful energy of this treasure in the woods of Woodstock!

This is a must see if you don't mind driving on an incline to the top of the mountain. Very nice and informative tour. This Catholic enjoyed the history and can appreciate what these people endure.

While planning a trip to Woodstock, we saw on tripadvisor that this Monastery was right down the road from the main town and up the mountain- we came for a visit. KTDT Buddhist Monastery is located on a beautiful mountain. We drove up and saw a parking lot right near the buildings, parked and had no issues. We stopped in... More

KTD Tibetan Buddhist Monastery is quite a beautiful temple. The prayer room is magnificently adorned with wonderful flags and images. Whether Buddhist or not, you should see this colorful place.

After climbing drive across the street to the monastery. The monks are very friendly. The grounds are peaceful. The temple is open and you will probably see some people sitting on pillows with folded legs praying at a very large gold Buda. It only takes a minute to walk around and peek inside. I would not suggest small children they... More

My daughter and I stopped in to see this monastery. It is small but worth the drive up the winding mountain road. I would recommend taking the free tour offered on Saturday and Sunday which we did not. I think we would have gotten a lot more out of what we were looking at. Very impressive artwork and statuary in... More
