This place is good to look at, very small center, you can ring the bell for good wishes. Parking is available on the street but may have to wait for someone to leave.

The center was unfortunately closed at the time we visited. They have a gift shop and prayer garden. Both closed as we came on a Sunday. But the Center's stupa and pray wheel were wonderful. We just happen to be In Pa'ai and that is...More
