Located on the Windward side of Oahu, the cemetery is nestled in a cleft of the pali and home to wild peacocks and hundreds of Japanese koi carp swim in our waters. The property is surrounded by a natural amphitheater of mountains which overlook the ocean. The views from Inspiration Chapel are spectacular.Put Valley of the Temples at the forefront of your travel plans using our Kaneohe online itinerary planner.
The cemetery's gardens honor many faiths including Christianity and Buddhism. A replica of Japan's 950-year-old Byodo-In stands in the Temple of Equality. The original, made of wood, stands in Uji, on the outskirts of Kyoto; the Hawaiian version, made of concrete, was erected in 1968 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants to Hawaii.
Valley of the Temples reviews
Beautiful and peaceful area. It was raining when we were there but it took nothing away from the experience. Parking is tight so you may have to wait to enter.

We spent less than an hour strolling the grounds and enjoying the peaceful and beautiful temple. Ponds with fish, turtles and swans.

This well-manicured memorial park is breathtaking! It’s worth the extra time and energy to drive around and take in the different views/perspectives of the various memorials. The Buddhist temple in the back is beautiful! Get out of the car, walk around the grounds, meditate, ring the bell, feed the koi fish and birds and watch the graceful black swan mesmerize guests. Truly. You won’t regret it; it’s good for the soul.
A hidden gem in a beautiful area tucked underneath the mountains. My jaws dropped when I first saw the temple. Lots of koo fish..and bird feeding oppurutnities! Worth visiting at least once in your lifetime. Picture worthy! Beautiful area and landscaping!
Loved the location. You can spend 30 min in this location to enjoy the nature and the temple architecture. There is a tiny lake full of fish around the temple, and worth your time.
Beautiful Cemetery and Temple. You should book a bus tour beforehand. My tour guide was very informative and I had enough time to see everything. Very peaceful memorial site.
Spent an afternoon exploring this beautiful memorial park. The grounds are well maintained, peaceful, serene and mystical. Absolutely loved exploring the Byodo-In Temple!!!
