Great place to pray, or to visit with family; or to educate kids with Buddhist history; or simply to have tea with friends... I noticed some negative reviews about the tea house food, please remember.... more »
A humanistic Buddhist temple open 9am-5pm Tuesday to Sunday, main language they use is traditional chinese writing and speak Mandarin and cantonese. Ceremonies are held on every Sunday morning at 10am, with vegetarian lunch served at the basement around 11:30 for a few bucks ( only after the ceremony ). Most of the Monday temple is closed for cleaning and maintenance. A main Shrine with Buddha statues, a library on second floor, book store on ground floor. A small beautiful and delicate restaurant for your lunch , on ground floor but members only. *** Everyone is welcome, but little restrictions on dress code to show respect, please no short skirts, no shorts, no low cut tops or any clothes exposing too much of the body. Please Don't bring meat into the temple. At last, this is a very quiet and respectful place that you can come, relax and explore your inner spiritual need.
A very peaceful and clean Asian Buddhist temple with nice main hall and beautiful statues. People are friendly and services are wonderful. The vege food is delicious and worth to try. The monks are in good dharma practice.
Perfect place for a noodle bowl. Peaceful setting, inexpensive, healthy food. In same building as Buddhist temple. Simple decor. Wooden chairs and tables. Don't miss it if you're in the area. Ask for extra noodles. Only tea and water for drinks. Bathrooms impeccable.
Phenomenal atmosphere, I went to try a meditation excersize and felt it make a huge difference to some underlying anxiety I was having at the time.
FGS is very connected to the Mississauga community. Everyone is very nice and they offer various activities for kids. The tea house is excellent. The laksa noddle is amazing and the fresh fruit tea is one of my favourites. To get into the tea house you will need to purchase a membership. From what I can remember it is either $30-35 for the 12 months. All items at the tea house $10. Purchase your vouchers at the front desk.
