Byodoin Temple in Oahu, Hawaii Wallpaper 1024 x 768
The Byodo-In Temple is a non denominationa Buddhist temple located on the island of O'ahu in Hawaii at the Valley of the Temples. At 47-200 Kahekili Highway, the Byodo-In Temple is a replica of a 900 year old Buddhist place of worship at Uji in Kyoto prefecture of Japan. Inside the Byodo-In Temple is a nine-foot (3 m) Lotus Buddha, the largest wooden Buddha carved in over 900 years. It is covered in gold and lacquer. Outside is a three ton, brass peace bell. Surrounding the temple are large koi ponds that cover a total of two acres (8,000 m²). Around those ponds are lush Japanese gardens set against a backdrop of towering cliffs of the Ko'olau mountains. Sparrows are often seen fluttering about and playing in the garden trees while peacocks strut about displaying their beautiful feathers.
