The Byodo-In Temple is a non-denominational Buddhist temple which welcomes people of all faiths to worship, meditate or simply appreciate its beauty. The temple grounds are often used for wedding ceremonies for Hawaiians or visitors from Japan.
The temple grounds are expertly landscaped and impeccably maintained. They include traditional Japanese gardens and a 2-acre koi pond. The smell of fresh lavender and the sounds of the trickling brooks and chirping sparrows make for a peaceful and restful stop away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Peacocks wander the grounds displaying their beautiful feathers.
