I love this Temple, it's quiet and peaceful and has nice gardens as well as the temple. I have been there when they've had ceremonies too, which was pretty special and gave me a sense of peace.

Excellent temple ... really interesting section on deceased relatives in the back part of the shrine! Not too many tourists either, fantastic.
