Byodo-In Temple

The serene Byodo-In Temple, on Oahu's windward side, is a replica of the famous temple by the same name in Kyoto, Japan. The hall resembles the "ho-o," a mythological bird of Chinese origin. Both ends of the roof are decorated with images of these phoenix-like birds, and the building is also called the Ho-o-do, or Phoenix Hall. A 7-ton bronze bell is on the structure, built of termite-proof cement.

The beautiful grounds include a two-acre reflecting lake, peacocks, swans, ducks, meditation niches, and little waterfalls. The mountains in the background and the lush gardens complete the scene.
