On our way the the Brooklyn Bridge we found shelter from the rain in this temple. We have seen bigger and nicer Budah Temples around the world but this was nice too. We got our fortune and donated something extra.

My cousin wanted to go to a temple, and low and behold, he found one. the front was under construction, so it threw me off on where the entrance was. But once inside, the colors, the statues, the beauty and peace that came out of the place was wonderful Beautiful jewelry, and very nice people. its a must see!.

The address should be fixed now. It's right at Canal and Bowery where the Manhattan Bridge begins. Go inside to see the giant Buddha and shrine. It's free.

I really wanted to go here as on our previous trip to NYC , it had just closed when we got there. I was keen to see the 16 foot Buddha . It is lovely to just come in and enjoy the peace and quiet and there is a little shop upstairs selling little Chinese jade ornaments,key rings and good luck charms and bits of jade etc , there was a charming little old Chinese lady when we were there , very friendly and chatty.
Although it only took up about 20 mins of our time , I will most definitely like to go in again when I next visitChinatown as it was such a lovely spiritual place.
