The largest reclining Buddha! This does not take long to view, but spend time on the grounds as they are beautiful. Sometimes there is an ice cream truck that comes by. Take advantage of that!!

A lovely place to spend some time in solitude. Temple ground is well kept and a few new features have been added to the temple landscape.
