This is a nice place to stop and sit for a bit. Lovely grounds and shade trees make a nice break from the everyday. For film buffs, this was also a film location for The Doors.

A serene and beautiful place to sit and picnic, pray or chat. The Greek-like temple gives it an special exotic atmosphere.
