Buddhist Temple, Wood Valley, Hawaii

in travel •  15 days ago

A short trip to a nearby island, where I found a Buddhist Temple in beautiful Wood Valley, above Pahala, Hawaii, in the mountains.

It’s called Nechung Temple, it’s a Buddhist Temple, Meditation Center and Retreat. It’s full name is “Nechung Dorje Drayang Ling” Which I believe means “Immutable Island of Melodious Sound.”

It was a simple yet peaceful place.
