Would recommend this to any family to attend. The ringing of the bell is awesome, Koi ponds, swans, and the temple itself was breathtaking. A leisurely tour with gift shop time etc takes about 1.5-2 hours.

Calming and Beautiful! I saw this temple in the distance on many previous trips to Oahu, and wanted to visit it. Our Family liked the break. We enjoyed ringing the bell and watching the goldfish. Nice!

After a half day snorkeling at beautiful Hanamua Preserve, three of our family drove an hour to visit Byodo-in Temple, set on acres of lush gardens. Very few people were there. The grounds and structures are extensive. It is a very suitable place to visit...More

The Byodo-In Buddhist Temple is a magnificent structure and grounds. The gardens are breath taking, the koi pond is quite a treat (you can buy bags of fish food and watch the feeding frenzy) and you can pay homage to the great statue of Buddha,...More

This was one of our stops on our island tour of Oahu. We were here for 20 minutes. Enough time for a bathroom break, a visit to the gift shop and then snapping a few pics while we were here. Very impressed of the temple...More

Stopped by after visiting the Pali Lookout. The Byodo-In Temple is found on the Windward side of Oahu, in the area called the Valley of the Temples. It is well maintained and beautifully landscaped. Cost is minimal to get in. There was a nice gift...More

the Temple is a very calm and tranquil place to visit just at the base of the mountain in the cemetery.

Kids enjoyed feeding the koi and banging the gong. Worth a quick visit to this beautiful place if you are in the area.

hi, I don't recollect a sign regarding pets but it is not a public place. It is privately owned and operated. This is a solemn, religious area, so I would presume no.

I think around 10:00 would be best time to go there. Visiting there from Waikiki area must need to use high way, such as H1. In my experience, until 9:00am has heavy traffic jam, so leaving around 9:30 to go to the place... More
