The Byodo-In Temple is a smaller-scale replica of a 950-year-old Byodo-in Temple, in Uji, Japan.
It took my breath away when I saw it. It is tucked away at the base of the Ko'olau Mountains and is stunning.
Inside the temple there is a 9 foot tall Buddha. Before you enter the temple, you ring a sacred bell. They say ringing the bell will purify the mind of evil spirits and temptation and that it will bring you happiness, blessings, and a long life.
