This traditional structure was built in 1976 for the Jodo Shinshu Sect under the Buddhist Churches of America. Higashi Hongwanji Buddhist Temple is associated with the Honpa Hongwangi-ha Hongwanji (Nishi Hongwanji) in Kyoto, Japan. A wide flight of stairs leads to the entrance, and the roof is made of pretty blue tiles and holds two dragons to protect it. The temple is open to anyone: regardless of color, creed or nationality who is interested in learning about the teachings of Amida Buddha. Call the temple before attending for more information.
