We had heard from our local friends that it had a great vegetarian restaurant. We were not at all disappointed in the wide variety of excellent dishes, which were reasonably priced.

If you want a vegetarian meal in a simple, serene environment dine at the restaurant at "City of Ten Thousand Buddhas". Eggplant with basil is always my first choice. Love the fried rice and egg rolls. Most selections are excellent. Cash only.

If you are interested to visit Buddhist temple, this is it! The founder of this temple contributed majority part of this camp area to "education" usage. The actual temple is only a small building. I think that is a noble cause! Many peacocks wondering inside...More

There are no fees. You are able to go about the place and park for free. The only thing they ask is that you do sign in. There are two reasons I can see they would want this for. One would be to show how many people come and... More
