A wonderful gem of a place. So enjoyed visiting here, the ponds and the use of rocks, bamboo and plants was extraordinary. Run and owned by the Budda Maitreya. Looking forward to re visiting in the summer months

I last visited 20 years ago and it has really got better with maturity. Superb Japanese garden which is a delight to walk round. It was great to sit in the pleasant surroundings, listening to the calming water and watching the carp.

I have meditated in many places. But I wouldn't here. The tickets were bought through Groupon. But he was more interested in having his money rather than helping visitors have a good experience. Don't go out of your way.

An absolutely amazing place to visit. You walk in, and think you're in a someone's small back garden, and you sort of, are. Except this one is huge, carefully laid out, full of interesting plants, trees and sculptures. Ponds, streams, crystals. It's peaceful, with only...More

No you can pay when you get there. There is advance booking if you want it, but it's not necessary.
