Near the temple we also have other buildings, such as prayer wheels, Guru Rinpoche statue, Buda Akshobia statue, stupas, house of lamps and, in the... More

Nice place to take a long breath to fell the energy and peace. It’s located in the green mountains, in the south of Brazil. Near the Temple there is a good place to sit and enjoy the view with a cup of tea or coffee.

It's not just for sightseeing but also, and specially for a good relax and quiet meditation. The place is beautiful, buildings are built in the best bushist style and everyone can partecipate to open cerimonials

Even if you don't be a buddhis, you need to know this place. Faith, mythology, history and imagination mix your mind and create a new atmosphere...

If not for my local friend I wouldn't even know that this place exists. It is a 15-20 min drive up the hill.Before you can enter the park you need to ring the intercom by the main gate. They ask for your registration number plate. The temple is closed between some hours but I can't remember so check before going.... More

Well, I spent 15 days there for a nudist cerimony, not being introduced to buddhism. they did a beautiful job there, constructions are very loyal to buddhist eastern temples. The place is high, you can watch the valley below very far to neighbours cities. On weekends it becomes a tourist attraction, so if your aim is some peace, avoid these... More

Wonderful place to spend the day. All clean, wonderful landscape, peaceful. The buildings are amazing. The only problem are the people, the visitors, who insist and keep talking instead of getting touched by the mantras that are trying to calm our mind activities. Best spot in the region!
