The Sharon Temple is a piece of history tucked on a beautiful shaded property. There are several historical buildings. Some with people there to explain the workings or life styles of the past. A step back in history just minutes away.

A very knowledgeable young lady took us through the site. Her enthusiasm was refreshing and brought the temple and its history to life. Wonderful to see that part of our Canadian history has not only survived but is being refurbished.More

We were the only visitors on a quiet Sunday. Teens are generally not keen on this sort of thing but there were quite a few "wows" regarding the architecture. The staff member that greeted us made it special with her in-depth knowledge of the Temple...More

Thank you so much for visiting, and for your review. I'm glad that you were as amazed by the architecture as much as we are everyday that we are here. Our festivals, especially those that have music, should definitely be on your summer/fall to-do list....More

This building played a role in the Toronto rebellion despite being founded by the "Children of Peace" proving the concept wasn't invented in the 60's. The building isn't heated so it's really a warm season venue. Lots of info on the Web site and they...More

Really neat building. Surrounding land also contains various homesteads and relevant structures. A lot of history about the temple and its people is available. Worthwhile to pack a picnic and spend an afternoon checking it out.
