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.
