fo guang shan hsi lai temple
as part of my current internship with occidental college, i recently took a trip to hacienda heights to visit a buddhist temple. if you've been to this particular one, you realize how massive this complex is - and incredibly ornate. modeled after the ming dyansty archetecture, it is a powerful experience just to walk up and approach it.
we had a great time, and i highly recommend checking it out if you are ever in the area. they frequently offer tours, and there is a fantastic vegetarian cafe in the basement for you to grab a bite to eat.
