  • One off the coolest places I have EVER been! Make sure to check out the gift shop. After doing that ask for the free tour. The gentlemen who gives the tour is super nice and has so much knowledge of the history of Buddhism and the White Sands Temple. After the tour you are free to explore the grounds. I have been back since to meditate and just relax in a place where be with my thoughts. Anyone who has some time on their hands please visit! You will thank me later.
  • Tranquil Sanctuary. Great for a quiet walk and peaceful moments. The statues are impressive in size.
  • If I had to chose one word to describe white sands Buddhist temple it would be " tranquility " . I loved the gift shop, and the staff were exceptionally kind and helpful. Make sure you keep an eye out for the white short hair feline.
  • Beautiful place, I love it. Charlotte very nice person at the Gift Shop. Very good atmosphere.
  • Absolutely beautiful. It's small, off the main road. Quiet, peaceful, a great place to spend time meditating, walking the grounds and admiring the statues. Highly recommended.
