Beautiful and peaceful grounds. Whether you want to go for a quiet walk, or sit and say some prayers, this is the place. A good place to gather your thoughts. Good playground for kids. Great gift shop. I visit frequently as I live close by.

They had about 10 different soups. Salad bar was great. The soups tasted great. A good variety. Some cream soups and others vegetable and chili. The salad bar had lots of toppings. Even chips and salsa. Good price I would go again.

It's free, but the Shrine does ask for a donation before exiting.
