International Buddhist Temple

Buddhist Temple in Richmond & Steveston

The highlight of this classical Chinese temple complex is the sumptuous Gracious Hall, complete with deep-red exterior walls and a gently flaring porcelain roof. Check out the colorful 100m Buddha mural and the golden, multi-armed Bodhisattva figure. The landscaped garden, with sculptures and bonsai trees, is another highlight. You don't have to be a Buddhist to visit and the monks are highly welcoming if you're keen to have a look around.

The temple's Taste of Zen vegetarian cafeteria is also popular with visitors; it's open for lunch everyday from 11:30am to 3pm.
