City of 10,000 Buddhas is one of the largest Buddhist monasteries in the Western Hemisphere. It houses a book/gift store, a temple that is open to the public, a museum, and a fantastic vegetarian restaurant. In spite of it housing a lot of people, it is a very quiet place to spend a day and learn about Buddhism in the West. The people that live there are friendly and engaging.

Know Before You Go

The restaurant closes at 3 pm as of this writing, and is not open every day.
