A group of friends spending time on Kauai came across this opportunity to visit a Buddhist temple. The grounds are manicured and beautiful, the history is very interesting, and the temple is amazing. I would highly recommend a visit to this temple!

A must see hidden gem of Kauai! Check for hours and times of tours before going up there. Car pool whenever possible beacuse it can be very busy with limited parking. Amazing place even if your not religious, amazing gift shop too!

You could have an Uber driver or taxi company pick you up at the harbor and it would cost approximately $30.00 each way!
